    Im waiting to get our taxes done and then i'm getting a round pin for the horses. A firend is thinking if selling his and I think he only wants like 200 or so. I set her loose with our arab mare this morning and I was very supprised that they didnt do much just run a bit. But the clyde is not wanting to run like the arab, its kinda funny. Here are a few pics from this morning only min after she was set loose. The arab (abbey) didnt even care she was theres she just wanted to finish her grain in peace lol. Once done abbey checked her out. Im still trying to think of a good name any suggestions, oh also if anyone has more suggestions on getting her to lead better, she does ok but she don't want to stop when I do and she is trying to walk alot daster than me. Thanks everyone. =)

    If I have one like that leading, I carry a dressage whip, and have it in front of the horse. Then I can tap the horse's chest to remind them to mind where I'm at (not whip them, just tap them). I do a lot of stopping, too. I walk a bit, and hard stop (I use a verbal cue and they learn it quick). Can be done without the whip, but I find it helps them learn quicker. Lots of this will help reinforce they can't get ahead of you and need to stop when you say so. I'm sure you'll get a lot of other responses, that's just my way ;)

    She's so cute! Get a rope halter and use it consistently. It really helps with my guy. Use pressure until she gives in and release. I used a John Lyons book to guide me in groundwork with my colt and it helped make him really light in hand. He's now 18 hds and wonderful on the ground. Can't start too early with these big guys. A rope halter still works on Cody except when lunging. I don't have a round pen and when cantering he will sometimes get too strong so I have to use a stud chain.
