What do your horses look like at 60 days?

I got my colt back after 3 months (paid for 60 days so some of that was down-time) and I don't even know if he canters. Honestly. The trainer I used said he got him to canter one direction in the round pen but not the other, so he started riding him out on the trails. (Which is what I want, a trail horse). My guy is a bit spooky and hesitant but basically honest. I think he is going to be okay. But I paid for 60 days and I don't even know if I have a horse that canters under saddle.

My colt also has bridling issues that started before training but the trainer didn't work on it. And my colt didn't know how to back out of a trailer before he left (we always turned him around) and the trainer didn't work on THAT either. So I think I got a lazy trainer.

The main problem I saw with the video (as a layman) is that the horse was very hollow. Like maybe saddle fit was an issue or ???

Gosh Smrobs, I wish you were closer. I would have sent my gelding to you. He's a good boy, just very green. It's been a long hard struggle for us.

I hear you, and I would have gladly taken him, he seems like a real sweetie.

Barring any unfortunate issues that I have to battle like bucking or a horribly resistant temperament, I'll generally be out loping circles on them in 60 rides with them picking up the correct leads, they will definitely be neck reining, good stops, leg yeilds, etc.

This mare had about 45 rides under me at the time of this video. She came to me with 30 days of previous training (insert eyeroll here) and I had a bolting backward issue to deal with before I could safely do much more with her.

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/

You could have saved me a lot of $$. Next time-I will spend the $$ to ship them to you for 60 days...or more.

Trailhorserider-Did the trainer not maybe recommend leaving the horse to at least somewhat finish it? I usually send mine for X months, but since I am there regularly and see the progress, there are many opportunities to change the time period based on the needs.
