She has gained a good bit of weight, some muscle and is filling in nicely. (As much as she can within a month anyway!) Her training now consist of great ground manners, good leading skills (INCLUDING sidepass, pivots), ground tying, trailers like a champ, and recently - I can pick up all her feet while she is ground tied! And THAT was a tough one to overcome! She lunges like she gets paid overtime for it, she is a quick learner. Both on a line and free lunging, w/t/c stop and turn all very quickly and on command. SO! My question is, is it time to start saddling her?
I want to saddle and bit her (loose ring french link snaffle) and start ground driving her so she learns her directional cues before I hop in the saddle. She currently stands at 14.1 hands and about 800 pounds. The first picture is from the first day I brought her home, the middle is today and the last picture is from yesterday :) let me know what you think!
