Sage's Journey Thread (* Pictures and updates throughout the year *)
Hello everyone, I decided I'd just make a thread for Sage and how she progresses. She'll be five in May. Lately the thing I've been working on most with Sage is speed control and being supple. I want to make sure she has a good foundation.

This being my first horse that I've ever had trained by someone. I plan on having another trainer put time on her as well. He's a cutting trainer. I want her to be an all around horse. I've never had lessons or anything of that sort so it's training for me as much as it is for her. My mother has taught me what I know which is great.

I've rode everyone's green, bucky, and soured horses. I've learned a lot from those type of horses. I've also had to "fix" my posture because I leaned too far back from riding unpredictable horses and then over-corrected to sitting too far forward. Just to fix posture issues is a difficult thing to do.

Anyway, here are some pictures of Sage. She's been trying to root a little lately so need to work on that. Her transitions have improved tons.

Earlier this week.

Bad Hair Day.

That Night.

Well I went to ride Sage today and found that there's a "bug" going around the facility. Comes with a cough, nasty nose and some horses have had a temp. She has a cough. I didn't have my thermometer with but it'll be going tomorrow. If she has a temp I'll be getting a hold of the vet.

She didn't get worked too hard today. Just some circles and working on collection. Majority of the time was spent grooming her and working on getting her square, etc. She did well. I'm going to ride tomorrow and I've beed debating on whether I want to do a video. It's kinda iffy as it's suppose to rain and possibly be windy. So having my good camera on a tripod is kind of a risk I'm not willing to take. lol

I'll probably ride her twice tomorrow if she's feeling ok. They will be having roping practice. She's never been around a chute gate let alone in the same pen with cattle. That should be a blast. She's already curious of the ones outside the round pen.

So here are some pictures of her running amuck in the round pen.
