    Chose a trainer for Mana!

    As my Arab colt is rounding out to his 2nd birthday later this year, I have been diligently searching for an appropriate trainer to teach him the things I cannot or do not have the skills to teach him properly.

    I am no trainer, he was a surprise foal, and I am just trying to do right by him. So, instead of the backyard trainer with no credentials and crappy facilities that is right down the road which charges a mere $200 for "full breaking", I have secured a place for him at a very experienced and reputable facility almost half an hour away which is going to cost me more than my horse boarding and rent a month combined because I know that he will be taken care of and his training will be done with his welfare in mind.

    My new trainer is retired from breeding and showing, but has a very prestigious history in Arabian breeding, training, and showing. In his opinion, Mana is at the perfect age to start learning what a bit is, what a saddle is (though no riding will be done until later this fall), learning to lunge, ground drive, and fine tune issues that I have had with him, and other things as well.

    Considering his history, I trust his judgment and Mana will be going there about a week after he is gelded. He was going to be gelded next week, but the weather has taken a crap again and so I am thinking he will be gelded mid or late March so that I will actually be able to hose him down and such.

    I can't even explain how big a sigh of relief this has been to find a good trainer for him. I am considering sending Deja there to get a good work up and maybe trained to cart. Haven't decided yet.

    Just had to tell someone! I'm so happy!
