- Thank you so much! I will be doing what you said for sure! So far I have not saddled or bridled her, but am planning to in the next few weeks. I have been lunging her only a little bit, because I know it is hard on her joints. I have tied her, and left her for 10 mins at the most, and she loves to be groomed. Mostly I just drop the lead rope, and not tie her up.
I have had the bareback pad on her, just to get use to the girth around her stomach. And I am going to contact someone with good horses, to maybe pony her around on nice days. I just have to get her use to other horses being around her in the open (she doesn't like them in the open, will try to kick the others, and gets really pushy) so I have been working on that also.
Thank you again, I really appreciate it, and I am looking into different horse training methods, including the ones you mentioned.
- Hello, I just wanted to say hey, I live in Saskatchewan too! I live in Birsay if you know where that is?
Anyways, I wanted to ask you a question also. Do you do any groundwork with your horses in winter? I have a 2 year old that I am training, but we have been doing the same thing over and over again. I want something new to do with her. I know some things she will need to continue doing, but I want to give her more of a challenge. Any Ideas?
I am asking this because you know what it is like in Saskatchewan, and what the weather is like.
