Filly in Training

Hey guys! I got an AQHA filly about a month ago and have been working with her all the time. I have a blog that includes all my work I've done with her and I would LOVE if you would check it out and suggest other things I should work on with her! Thanks so much!

Very cute! Keep it up. So many blogs go by the way-side, including mine *coughs* ... but I think you'll appreciate it 3 years from now to take a look back at all you did. Having a record of your memories will eventually become priceless! Back up your blog somewhere so you don't loose your hard work.

So what I have done so far with her is tie her up (in the arena and washrack), put on and take off her blanket, halter, and hood, lunge, lead, stop, back, pick up feet, spray her with fly spray, sack her(I think it's called, take a plastic bag and touch her with it so she isn't scared of it), lead her over a plastic bag, and wash the ground and wall in the wash rack while she's tied up so she can get used to the noises.
Anyone have any suggestions or ideas of what else I should do with her?

Tarps, motorcycles, empty grain sacks , smack the ground next to her with a rope or whip, and ponying her are all helpful things :). Good luck she is cute.

She is a real beauty. Some things that I did with my young horses is have them flex their neck and head toward their stomach on both sides. I would also teach them to side pass from the ground. I practice loading and unloading them into a trailer. I also drape the lead rope all over her body. I would also lay the rope across her like it is a girth and tighten it a little and then relax it and tighten it for her to get use to having a girth tighten on her. I also started up four wheelers around her and other loud objects like boat motors, lawn motors etc... It sounds like you are off to a great start and it will pay off. I am breaking a two year old right now that has been through all those things and she has been very easy to break.

Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely be able to be pretty busy with her for quite a while! :)
