    Training Banjo

    Just wanted to gloat a little. My 4 yr old gelding Banjo is very green broke- I have had him from 18 months old and did most of the groundwork on him myself. In February I took him away for a month to a professional trainer, who worked with both him and me to get him started. This summer I started taking lessons on him with a dressage instructor, mainly because very few instructors will come to our area regularly and it was an oppurtunity to get him going with some proper coaching. Although my main focus for him is just trail riding, I figured some basic dressage training couldn't hurt, and it is something I understand as I used to take dressage lessons years ago. Well, up until yesterday all of our lessons have been on a lunge line, but yesterday we had our first fully independent lesson using the whole arena, and Banjo did AWESOME! Really nice working trot, nice straight lines and good corners, and no silly stuff (he did spook once, but so slightly the instructor didn't even realize it was a spook!) But I was SO proud of him, he was responding to all the cues and even seemed to be enjoying himself. My instructor was full of praise and compliments at the end for my little fat dressage Morgan!
