Progress With Diesel <3

I thought I'd start a journal on here to be able to go back and read about all of the things that I've done with my new boy.
The first time that I saw Diesel was sometime near the beginning of November. My mom and I drove from SE Ohio to just west of Indianapolis. The weather that morning was great and literally a half hour after we started out it sstarted raining, then getting colder, then snowing. Needless to say it was a long eleven hours on the car.
When we got the the woman selling him came out to meet us and seemed like a very nice honest lady. She got him out of the stall and he was so friendly, sweet and curious but not in your face about everything. I got on a rode him trying not to expeect too much from him because hes's only three. He was the perfect gentleman and I loved him from the get go.
Now, after finally picking him up on December 2nd, he's home with me now. I haven't even gotten to ride yet because it rained for about a week straight and still hasnt dried up enough to do anything. I've started working on him with showmanship and have had a lot of fun. I'll try to post pictures of my first ride with him soon.
In the mean time, I'll be looking for a new trianer to work with and a CC saddle to buy. Can't wait for my first ride on my new boy

I finally had my first lesson with Diesel tonight. He hasn't been ridden in about two months and he was perfect. He was a nervous mess in the trailer but he only took about five minutes to settle in at the arena. I lunged him for 20 minutes and put a saddle on him. I lunged a little more to see what he would do and he threw about 6 bucks and decided he was okay. I got on and he was a perfect angel. We started working on his headset and he sort of got the hang of it. I am so proud of him and how well he did. Can't wait until next weekend!

Good deal, a real confidence builder was just what you needed....

My mare is really eager to please if she understands what I'm asking.

I've had her for about 3 years now and ride most every weekend. I couldn't ask for a better horse.

I think you and Diesel are going to make a good pair....just be patient and let him think about things if he gets confused.

Have fun and enjoy him!

Diesel keeps impressing me every time I ride him. Last thursday I got on him and rode with my sights set on working on his headset. He picked it up sooo fast. Our first show is in about three weeks and my current goal is to show him in the w/t hunter under saddle class just to get him some experience since we havent worked on his canter much. Right now what he needs is some good solid muscle.

Bring him to the mountains.....a few 15 to 20 mile trail rides in the Cohutta's will put some muscle on him.
