Thanks. Yeah it takes alot of time, she had a pretty rough go to. She was a late start (my choice) and then had to take a month off after her surgery.

She is a bit behind but my trainers are confident in her. They think she is wonderful once she gets over her stubburn behaviour.

She's looking very good. Congrats.

Wow! Haha we showed the horse I'm exercising for some people to a possible buyer today, he's 12, a AFTER lunging him for 15 mins, he still let out a buck when I started loping him.... so I'm VERY impressed that a two year old is so level headed! Great work! I love her little baby slide, too! heehee

That is one thing about reiners. Even the babies. They just seem to love to work and you rarely have any problems from them. Once my young horses are well started I never lunge again. No matter how long they have been off. Even my stallion never gets lunged before we ride even when he has had 6-8 months off.

The young horses might buck a bit on the line for the first few times but even after that they really do not act up much. They are all about the work.

Yeah they really do have a great work ethic. She waits at the gate, as do all the other prospects at the barn (all 2yr olds and some 3yr old futurity horses)

WOW. Nice little filly! Plain, like you said, but sometimes plain is good. =) She moves nicely, too! I def. see a prospect all right. only 55 rides? That's really good! She has a nice stop too.... I think that the ones that you have to really push to get them to go like that usually have good stops because they want to stop! Ha. And then there's the little spitfires like mine that will stop and roll back and leave you in the dirt if you're not paying attention lol. Trust me. Lazy is a good thing!

Yeah, awesome! I want to hear moreeeee!

To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.
