Selena, from crazy bronc to kids lesson horse! *Pic HEAVY*

So you guys know her, and how much toruble we had in the beginning with her totally exploding at random times, sticking her head between her knees and bucking, rearing, bolting for no reason, crowhopping, the works o.o

Well, I'm proud to say, after two years...This is the result.

Maya is six years old and struggles with her health. Her weight, for one. She also is autistic.

Rebel is the horse I would normally use as a lesson horse, but in his time off he has become a little too strong.

Sooo, we went with Selena.

She was a doll. She did test Maya a little bit by wanting to go back to the gate or the food, but that was expected, and she handled it fine.

Don't comment on the tennis shoes please. She is going to buy boots soon, she just didn't have any for this lesson. She ended up kicking her feet out and riding without stirrups anyway.

So, let's see this crazy bronco























And finally, all growed up and riding on her own without my help!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Horse is lovely, very patient; but I will suggest buying a helmet when you get boots.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Oh I was just waiting for someone to comment on the helmet thing....Again, that's our business, no offense :) She rode in my english show helmet last time. It's up to her Mom.

Thank you guys for the replies :) Selena is just so wonderful and a total joy and blessing.

Me, too! NOTHING feels better than sharing your horses with someone else.
