I’m back riding Kitt and will be free leasing him for 2013.. He’s having new issues though lots of bucking and rearing from not waiting to move forward.. I’ve done stretches, lunged with and without tack on, he’s had his teeth done.. Could it just be because he had so much time off? Hadn’t been worked since December.
This is jack! 3 months ago he was unridable and very underweight. He was trained western pleasure but had a very bad bucking& biting his sue under saddle so we switched him over to English about a month and a half ago. He’s now going great and my next step will be to work on his head carriage. More lunging days with bungees and side reins. Just wanted to get the bucking issue resolved first. Also please only judge me in the jumping picture since ones only jumped a handful of r times and it isn’t pretty. Thank you!
The above picture is the now happy, healthy, ridable and trusting horse named Jack. This was taken today playing in the snow. Below is a picture of him the first time my friend and I met him and decided to dedicate as much time as possible to helping him. Three months later he’s going w/t/c, jumping , trail riding, and barrel racing. To think no one would even handle him because he was “dangerous”.
i just wanted to share the progress of this little fellow he had quite a rocky history and now he’s on his way to being a very fine horse. Any comments are welcome thank you!
