wow she's gorgeous!!! I bet you did a lot of work with her to allow you to stand on her! What was your training routine like?

Thank you

hello,
Thankyou and actually she is just is that easy to ride. She is really sweet and tolerant, and lets you do whatever you want with her. She does not understand leg cues or anything like that yet but I figured it is a good start. She has been on the roads and the trails, she will move out if there is a horse ahead of her she just does not know what I want yet when I am on her back but is learning fast. As for training techniques I always start from the ground up. I spend some time every day on the ground with her walking her saying woah, and making her stop with just hearing me say woah and learning to walk just when I say it, and lunging, and ground manners. I did not know how she was going to act when I through the saddle on the first time and she acted great so I just threw the saddle up on her and jumped on and went on a trail ride. She is not spooky and knows woah and walk, but has not done much else. I don't want to rush her. She is doing everything at her pace... and she is really liking it.

Good for you. Are you going to continue to train her yourself?

yes I am,
I personly have not had very good encounters with trainers... So I do it myself and I love it! I love a challenge and its fun, cause you think your training the horse...but they are actually training you cause every horse is different and different things work on different horses so you learn so much with every horse you train. I get bored with my riding mare becuase she's REALLY broke. Like ridden twice a day for the past three years... so she knows everything... so I always have a few youngins around.

Ha I always wondered that too! I think Vida would let me stand on her, I'm just too much of a klutz. I'd fall off and Vida would look down at me and say "you idiot, whatcha do that for?"

She is a beauty though. Have fun with her
