OK so for those of you who don't know him, Dozer is a 6yo 18hh PMU horse. I didn't get him from the PMU farm I bought him from somewhere else so he is not a rescue. Since I got him he has had a lot of training. He could not walk up or down hills calmly. Only run or crow hop up and down. Fun huh? He also couldnt canter calmly, didnt know leg cues, and had no clue what personal space was. With the help of my trainer we have fixed all of those problems and taught him leg cues, better stop, better go, flexibility, and tighter turns. I think he is ready. The last two gymkhanas we have only walked the course because I love the horses that can walk in, out, and if asked throughout the whole course. He can now. He ran away with me a few times but yea now he is understanding. I think this gymkhana we might actually go faster than a walk (Sorry for the novel!!!)
Here are some pics. I think I only have one or two on this computer of us actually doing barrels but there will be more eventually!
This is us warming up
Running away with me. I think he didnt go through the comes so we dq'ed...
