It's only been a few days since I got my new horse, Preacher. Boy to I feel like I'm already digging into his past.
He HATES my English saddle and blanket - he thinks they are going to kill him. I blanketed him today and the poor fellow just stood there and trembled. I don't know how he was broke or if he was abused or what...
Preacher is VERY sweet and kind, as well as sensitive. I just want to build a trusting relationship with my partner and help him over come some of his confidence issues. <3
He is the low man on the totem pole and is fed alone. He's not mean and doesn't do anything wrong, but he's definitely scared. It breaks my heart. I have just been trying to get him use to his new surroundings and working with him on the saddle pad and saddle.
I'm open to any suggestions - I'm absolutely new at this
