Update on the new horse with problems!

Well, like I said, we brought the new horse to the new trainer last Sunday and he had him doing things that I never thought possible in only a few minutes . Since then, my son has gone over there several times (my son and the trainers son are now great friends and have hung out most of the week) and done some riding lessons with their rodeo horses. Jake (his horse) has not been back because my husband has had to work late and I've never hauled a trailer, so we have just been doing ground work. I haven't let my son get back on until I felt that the horse had his respect. That is, until this evening. Jake was absolutely perfect!!! He did exactly what my son asked him to do, including backing up and flexing! He even used his legs to get Jake to do what he wanted without using the reins. He said that he felt like he could get Jake to go faster than a walk, but I said to take things slow. My son is sooo excited!!! I can't believe that this time last week he was so depressed because he knew that if this horse didn't work out there was not much of a chance that my husband would let him get another horse. And, he was scared, but has a lot more confidence now.

Congratulations! Its amazing what a trainer can do! I have a mare I got a little over a year ago whom I had to BEG to get. She was first abused, then sold to a lady whom she pushed around horribly then given a three month crash course in barrel racing with a horrible bit. When I got her I felt WAY in over my head because she liked to run away with people. Soo many times I've gotten off her completely frustrated in the past year. She didnt have a walk OR a trot and her lope was almost a gallop. I told by a fellow rider to make her walk and trot only. I struggled for two months with her until I went to a trainer and in ONE lesson he had me walking, trotting, and loping on her comfortably. I've been showing my mare now and this morning before it got hot I rode her completely bareback loping and trotting around my home arena. My mare is now my best friend!

Isn't it incredible the difference a good trainer makes?

Congrats on the progression for your Son and his horse :)
