Lol. I'm glad he did so well. My qh mare that I am breaking in has a fit when I saddle her, even though I've done it a thousand times. I finally started cross tying her and she settled right down. She sure is stating to ride good. Posted via Mobile Device
Yay Beau! I'm at the exact same stage with a horse I'm working with currently (I had only intended to teach her ground manners, but one thing has lead to another...) so it's really exciting to see your progress. I look forward to hearing more! He looks like a super sweetie.
Last night, we ventured a ride into the pasture for ride #5!! He did fantastic, although his "go" button still doesn't work that great. I wanted to get him to trot on this ride, and the first time I asked him to trot, he actually stopped instead...... Oh well! I guess that's okay.
The lady I board with was riding with me, so that she could trot ahead and Shotgun could learn by example.
