Gil Do Lucero

Gil is a coming four year old who now has a real job. We've spent some time in the round pen on ground and astride work. He's still a bit "jumpy" as the world is new to him. He's willing and forward. With that combination he'll do.

We work 4-5 days a week, 25-45 min. Per day. In the round pen we work at all gaits, concentrating on building fitness and working on form and transitions. Under saddle it's almost all at the walk as he learns to balance himself. Soon we'll add bending and flexing exercises to encourage suppleness.

Note that he stands dead still for mounting. At least he did for the photo shoot. In reality he is stock still about 80% of the time. When he moves he's corrected and we try again. I've not had to do that more than twice in any work period.

If all goes as planned he's my competition horse for 2013 and beyond!

Here are some photos:

The palomino is Rhythm, a 16.2 hand Kentucky Saddle Horse who has a very smooth amble and nice flowy trot.

The blacks are Blues and Cisco, 2 Missouri Fox Trotter Siblings that are crazy as all get out. Blues is the sabino.

Thank you for your kind words on the place. I bit more rain would be nice right now, but all in all we're OK.

The horse is wearing an M1909 Cavalry halter and headstall. The lead rope is looped about the neck and tied in a "cavalry knot." You see this in a lot of U.S. Military horse photos post about 1906 when the Army shifted from a leather lead strap to a lead rope. If figure that since this is what he's going to be wearing on a regular basis in the future we'll get him used to it now!

I use Photobucket and then copy and paste the IMG link. You may be doing it correctly. In your post it will appear as a link, but if you go to preview my post, you will see if it comes up with the actual photo.
