Just remember, the NILIF rule - nothing in life is free. She only gets treats when she does something you ask. Later, treats can become less and less as she starts to do things you ask for, automatically. Not a good idea to leave halters on. Too many accidents have happened that way.

Keep up the good work.

Shoop has had her saddle on now and been for a stroll down the lane in it. She was great. She is starting to trust me and my bf now. Still a little nervous of strangers but doing great with us. Here's a pic of her in her saddle.

Right so Shoop's doing great, we've played with tarp, walking on and having it over her back neck and head and she is cool as a cucumber. She even played with the tarp in the field after we had let her go. She has also had her bridle on with a bit. Gave her a wee while just lose in the paddock with her bit in and then also took her for a long walk fully tacked up. She's coming along amazingly, wont be long before she is ready to back. Here are some pics from today...

I think I am in love with that other draft! Wish that coloring was more common here in the states. She's coming along nicely, keep up the good work!

That is one cool mare! What a good girl and how smart she looks in her new 'clothes'. Kudos to you for bringing her along so nicely.

Thanks for the nice remarks guys . That colouring isn't that common her either lol, I've never seen another like her in person shes a bit of a random.

Shoop is now well used to having her bit in. She just loves to go out walking, think shes a bit of a trooper, should have named her Forest. From that day on if she was going somewhere...she-was-trottting.

Anyway had her tacked up today and after a walk was holding the front and back of the saddle while jumping up and down as if i was going to get on. She was like 'what are you doing?' at first but then stood quietly. Gonna hop on any day now, waiting for the right combo of decent weather and my other half being about to give me a hand.

Here's a pic of Moomin letting Shoop help her finish her dinner...both these horses were sold to us as aggressive over food lol


Another one of Shoop after her pathetic excuse for a tail had been shampooed trimmed and moisturized, hoping it will explode over night into masses of hair...fingers crossed.

Thanks...I always try and add pics, I barely read threads that don't have them lol. It's a Barefoot Cheyenne saddle, I love it

Haven't had enough time to do any serious training so far this week but Shoop now runs up to us and shouts when she sees us. She will stand and be brushed loose in the field or have her tail de-tangled when shes eating her dinner. She seems to have really settled into her new life.

The last walk I took her on she had the stirrups on the saddle down so that she got used to things dangling about next to her sides, she was no different to normal, didn't bother her. She seems to love going for walks, I can't wait until we are hacking out with the horses this summer!
