Ok, so i'm working towards my K certificate in PC - And to get it one component is keeping a journal of breaking in a horse/pony. I'm horrible at keeping journals/diaries so I figured keeping it on here where I can get feedback and discussion and people yelling at me when I don't post might help! (So please yell at me when I don't post for ages :])
K Certificate Journal – Breaking in a Horse
Age: Rising 5yo
Height: Between 13 – 14h
Colour: Born chestnut, greying out – Currently dapple grey
Latte is a rising 5yo mare. She is heavily endurance bred – her dam is a full sister to a two-time Quilty winner and her grand-dam is also a noted endurance horse. Her sire, Barabas, is a successful show horse.
Latte hasn’t had much handling – She was born down the coast and trucked down when she was two. She has been floated twice since then with no issues. She picks up her feet and has been brushed, but is quite jumpy around people. She has had a bridle on once.
I have her on an agreement that when broken I can either buy her for $1,000 or sell her on and give the owner $1,000 and keep the profit. If she seems like a good MG/Pony Club horse, then I will keep her for my cousin to ride and me to ride games on.
