I ended up in a fight with the instructor cause he was sure showing us how to make a 30.000 dollar horse into a 30.000 dollar horse..what I wanted to learn.was how to make a 300.00 dollar horse into a 30.000 dollar horse..almost got booted out of the school on that one. But I can say my cheap horse beat all the expensive ones when we sold at the end of the year. Lol..enjoy. She is a keeper..thanks for the vid..loved watching it. Ride safe..
Thanks! I got him a little over a year and a half ago for $500 without riding him or anything and seeing him only once in person. I nearly gave my trainer a heart attack, she thought I was crazy, but I just knew that he had to be mine. I got him knowing that he hadn't been ridden in over a year, so I started off lunging him in the round pen for the first few weeks, which he picked up pretty quickly on. He knows my voice commands and listens to them now when I lunge him. He learns fast. He took the saddle and bridle easily, but when I actually got on him, he didn't want to move. With leg pressure, he backed up and nothing I did could make him move forward. With patience and some help from my trainer, we figured it out and took it a step at a time, and this is where we're at now.. learning to jump! He's turned out to be worth every penny of the $500 we spent on him and more! I can't wait to see what the future has for us. :) My friend who is riding him in this video & is used to riding fancy, expensive horses was thoroughly impressed with him and his honesty over jumps, said she thinks he'll do real well in shows, and commented that he was a steal for the price! :)
