This mare has been such a pleasure to work with... Saying she is "willing to learn" is an understatement. You can tell she just LOVES learning. 6 years old and unbroke when she arrived, she took a couple of days to settle, and during this time it was killing me to give her, her space and allow her to relax. I was so excited to get moving on my new project named "Frenchie." The first few times we worked together I realized how eager she was to learn, her eye always on me, I could just see the gears spinning in her head, trying to figure out my next request. I guess after 6 years of being a pasture ornament its possible you'd get bored and wonder just how interesting life outside of the pasture could be? She did every single thing I asked her to do, at first with some hesitation and a bit of confusion, but once she understood, you better believe we were flying through training sessions like crazy! lounging with a long line, CHECK! Free lounging in the round pen and stopping and spinning by hand signals, CHECK! Saddled and bridled (head set) free lounging, walk, trot, canter, CHECK. The next step was a rider.... that went just as well as the rest. This mare is an amazing creature with such elegant movement and a powerful stride, along with the mind and willingness to learn. She will someday make someone a wonderful, wonderful ride, whether it be in the ring or on the trails. I am very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her. It is so rewarding to know that I have made a difference in this horses life and I was able to show her what it's like to be that special ride. I hope you enjoy the photos!
