Olivia took a chance and bought Jazzy as a first horse because it felt right:
. Jazzy hasn't been ridden properly in 1 year because she had a foal.
. Jazzy needs to be broken in again to saddle and bridle.
. Jazzy was broken in a couple of years ago to saddle and bridle and used and abused by trail riding people.
. Olivia doesn't have a saddle yet because she is only getting on fitted !
. Jazzy needs teet floated so can't have bit, Olivia wants jazzy bitless any way.
Jazzy can be caught easily and waits around the front part of the paddock because Jazzy has only me as a friend who she trusts.
. Jazzy has done allot of groundwork and leading recently with me, she can tie up, be alright for farrier, lifts legs, can be touched every where, and have started the slowww lunging proccess. Because if any one new and scary walks in to the round yard, Jazzy gets scared and runs around a couple of times.
. Jazzy doesn't think she has to be chased and lunged to death with me and is used to lunge whip and can stop and turn when being lunged (used Klaus hempflings way to trun her with only body signals WAS AMAZED she turned in a surpentine figure !!!)
. Jazzy is starting to be very trustfull in me so I have walked and trotted her in a speacial Klaus Hempflings natural horsemanship way with only a lunge whip and using body signals and voice.
.Jazzy has acted "bum shy" a bit when olivia was being careless but now jazzy can have rope all over her spinning right infront of her face and behind her while she falls asleep, rope can be under her through her legs wrap around her legs and spin right above her body, and rope can drag accors the ground while Jazzy is calm and nearly bored of her brain !
. Have cracked lunge whip a bit and she's allright with that.Desensitised to a tarp (plastic sheet) covering her head,eyes,body and leading her with a tarp on her back also Jazzy can walk accros tarp millions of times doesn't care !
.I can do skiping rope near her, run arround flying the tarp every where and throw lead ropes near her she doesn't batter an eye lid.
. Jazzy is a one persons horse, prefers to be around children more than adults.
. Jazzy has been leaded over the rode and onto a hill to eat grass, jazzy was fine with the cars and trucks going past but we need to do more of that slowly.
I have walked and trotted Jazzy bareback (this week) and troted her over trot poles and a little jump to get her to lift her feet. She did one stride of canter but really needs a saddle or to be in the arena not round yard to do that.
Jazzy has great brakes and can slow down or speed up, Jazzy was easy to ride in the end but the halter was confusing her and she had no bad behaviour no bucking,rearing,pigrooting or any of that nonsense.
I Did feel her all over, once I got on her back she was calm and 99 % of the time had ears slightly back or one back to listen to me.
Some people I think thought I had bougt a crazy horse that I couldn't manage, but I took a chance and now I get told by people that have bred and been around horses for 40 years "well done" and how she's an amzing horse for that price is un believeable.
I not sure if she's always been like this or the Natural Horsemanship works, it amazes me what Klaus Hempfling doesand that it has worked with me and so far im not injured and we are both happy.
Jazzy is more of a western horse, and has that sorta training you lean back a little bit and she stops.
I will get video proof that proves every thing I have said, plus I need to make a documentary on this for youtube ect.
