BR, that would be funny, considering he is actually 2 weeks younger than she is (she's just a yearling too so plenty of time to get him broke before she's old enough to ride by herself).
MM, yep. I have worked with him since the day he was born on something that I knew I would need more than anything, getting him to drop his head when I ask. I can saddle a big old tall thing with some effort but if they won't drop their head, I cannot bridle them without a ladder (it sucks being short). It is nice to know that all I have to do is push lightly on his poll, tug on his forelock or mane and he'll drop his head nearly to the ground and accept both the halter and bit/bridle.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
