    Training Jaxxon

    I've finally begun to train Jaxxon. According to the vet, he was supposedly three when I got him, but my farrier, who I trust way more than the vet and who really knows horses, looked at his teeth a few weeks ago and said that Jax has only just turned two and a half, as he's only just recently lost the teeth horses lose in their second year.

    Anyway, I've begun to train him... very slowly, though. I'm in absolutely no hurry, and as soon as I feel he's going pretty well at a walk/trot undersaddle, he'll be put back out to pasture for the next few months until he turns three or three and a half.

    He's only had three actual rides put on him, but it no loger scares him for me to jump on him bareback. I'm starting him in a snaffle bit, and he'll ride in just a halter, too. He's doing great... very willing and pretty calm and level-headed. He's learning to move off leg cues and he kows how to flex and is also learning to disengage his hindquarters. He's a little stiff when it comes to turning, but he's getting better. I'm only riding him once or twice a week for only about fifteen minutes to thirty minutes at a walk right now. I'm going to get him going good at a walk before I introduce trotting.
