My arab was as thick as 2short planks and a coward to boot. Absolutly stunning to look at but a complete moron who didnt workout where to put all his feet untill he was 10 years old.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Well right now I'm hoping I can but even if I do end up giving him back to the lady he will still be where I ride and I can still see him and stuff so only time can really tell.

You are doing a great job of improving her body condition but don't loose sight of the fact that she is in need of having her feet done as that will affect the tendons and ligaments in her legs.

I am honestly trying to find a farrier brave enough to take her on.

The picture of her "flying" is my favorite! <3 haha. This was her first time free lunging, she did well. W/T/C, stop and change direction on command. The pics of her with the rope slung over her back are some pics of her learning to STAND. She is horrible with this, she wont let you brush her, walk near or around her, but we worked on ground tying. She will now successfully stand with the line over her neck, to be brushed, me to walk away and get stuff, and walk in circles around her.

It took time XD She would move and then I would immediately grab her, back her several steps, and bring her back and pull down and give her a firm, "stand".

We continued our leading work, turns on the haunches, fore and even side passing for the first time. She did amazing, crossing over and going straight to her side. She is so smart!

And she LOVES her new food, I am mixing purina strategy and purina equine junior!
