Thats great! Can't wait to watch your progress! Training my own horse right now as well.

Since you don't have a page for your horse I was wondering if you could start out by telling us what breed, age, and her training status is. Thanks!

well she is a quarter horse arabian cross we think some say she has morgan in her i really don't know. she is 6 years old and when i got her she was very skinny so i fattened her up and started working with her since we don't know her back round and my the way she acted once she was heathy we figured she is not trained but now we think she might have been somewhere along her lifetime. or just a very willing horse to learn. i've had her for almost a year now.

this is my favorite pic of her.

oh and her training is comming along great didn't get out to see her today though. we are working on bottons on the ground if you know what i mean and doing a little bit a riding but not much because its a huge open area and i'm waiting to move her to a place where i'll be in a safer place to work and have more control of her.

today was a great day and kinda funny with my friend there. well today i lunged her and she was a little sassy took me a while for her to go both ways. so i finally got her to go both ways and had the day with that part of her lesson for the day. then i also worked on turning on her front and back feet also did some side passing this is all on the ground. she did good with all that so yeah she was a little sassy becuase shes in heat but otherwised listened once she knew i wasn't letting her get away with anything. Also my friend was there and she wanted me to trot her horse so she had to hold her my horse while i trot her horse. she for some reason does not like my horse when my horse is way calmer then hers. hers rears up when she doesn't want to do anything. also when shes afraid she rears up too misty has learned i am there to protect her. so when my friend was holding misty she put her head by my friend and my friends like your horse is scarring me take her away and give me back my horse haha. idk i think its funny.
