I love it when I get to move students up from lessons with Storm to Mist. Storm is the best for walk lessons but Mist rocks the trotting lessons. That mare can trot all day long. She gave Bronwyn a thorough first trotting lesson on and off the lounge line this evening.

***Lesson update***

For past students only I'm available for lessons M-F 4-6pm.

I am not taking on any new lesson students. If you are not a past student of mine but are interested in lessons, feel free to contact me and I can give you contact info of other riding instructors in the area.

Flash missed a couple days of work due to hay so he is going to be here at least till Saturday. Todays work out had an improved lope departure! He's starting to figure out that I can/will ask for whoa at any given time, or I will make him canter for at least 5 minutes so he might as well lope and pace himself.

06/07/2019

Chilaili went home today! Here's to Lia and Chilaili, hopefully they have many years of good times and rides together.

06/07/2019

For past students wanting to have lessons, please be patient. I know I said right after school was out, but things have been a bit busy and we are in the midst of making hay right now. I will have an update after hay is finished

Chilaili's has made some major improvements in her overall demeanor over the last 21 days. She is still testy, and if permitted will try to slide in a nip or push into a person's space if given the chance, but she is manageable now. It took her years to develop these bad habits, so it's going to take a while of consistent correction for them to go away entirely. Below are two pictures from week one and two pictures for week three.

Incredibly proud of Flash today! His one rein stops at W/T/C improved dramatically from Saturday. He also started to slow down and pace himself at the trot and canter. He actually did a few laps around the arena at a jog and lope 😁! As a reward I figured I try something new to keep his mind engaged (video to be posted soon)

06/01/2019

Chilaili can walk and trot! No cantering for her since she desperately needs some farrier attention.

Woot, Woot! Flash is ridable again! Did lots of one rein stops at the walk, trot, and canter and 10 minute of cruising at the trot. By the end of the ride I was able to sit deep, say Whoa, and Flash would go from cantering to stop without me picking up the reins. He's smart and tomorrow's ride will be better

05/30/2019

Well Flash wasn't quite ready for me to ride today. I did groundwork with the bridle and on lateral flexing he was incredibly heavy. Since the lateral flexing is key to teaching one rein stops (which is the emergency brake while riding) I want him to be soft and responsive when I pick up on the rein on the ground first before I ask in the saddle.

Flash is doing great! If groundwork goes smoothly tomorrow as it did today then its ride time for Flash.

Chilaili has finally progressed to saddling. She has a few more days of groundwork with the saddle before I even think about riding. I don't want a hospital bill so I want her as mentally prepared as possible before I get in the saddle.

She can be taught! From kicking, striking, biting, and ripping the lead rope out of your hand at the sight of fly spry to standing still and relaxing with it sprayed in her previous "oh no!" spots

I've been saving for a while and finally had enough to get all my arena panels! I've waited many years to have a safe and secure place to work/ride horses and I finally got it! The waiting was hard but having this arena to work in was worth it. I've got 3 mismatched pieces but a little silver paint can fix that. 😁 The best part with these panels, I can easily move them and make a 40ft round pen if I'm working a pony or a 60 ft round pen if I'm working a draft horse.

Flash is definitely curious and alert about the girls playing on the swings. Just you wait buddy, the trampoline is going up soon next to the arena. Bahahaha!!!

(Side note: I'm still working on getting his dreadlocks outs. I got 2 out yesterday and this is the last one)

It took 7 hard days to get into Chilaili's brain. Today was day#10. The past 3 days she has done amazingly better. Still a little testy now and again but if immediately corrected then she is respectful. She earned herself 2 days of R&R which couldn't have come at a better time since she was a bit gimpy this morning on her right hind. I'm sore from working her so I can bet she is sore also.

Meet Mr. Flash! He's a 12 yr old grade Quarter Horse gelding that is in for a tune up. He was trained as a 3yr old and ridden a lot but over the years he has become more of a pasture pet.

After working him this morning, it is clear that he was well trained in the past and we are just going to be dusting some cobwebs out of his brain. He is super sweet with the typical want to please attitude of a quarter horse.

05/22/2019

Chilaili did so much better today!!! She did everything asked of her with very little pressure. Now just need to work on those pissy ears that she has.

05/22/2019

Chilaili was a bad bad mare today. Since all her bluffs (rearing, striking, kicking, throwing her head, etc) hasn't worked to "scare me away", she decided that she would throw her hind end at me to kick and when I corrected her by yielding her hindquarters she quickly snaked her head around and bit my chest. Bad idea Chilaili. Bad. Bad idea. Did I whack her nose? Yes. Under no circumstances is biting acceptable, and must be reprimanded immediately. I'm hoping this was her last card to play and that she realizes that I'm in charge.

She and I ended our session on an extremely good note which is where we will pick up tomorrow.

She still has a few more exercises to learn and needs refinement on those she has learned, but she's getting there. Today she did really well and earned herself some grazing time outside the pasture.

These two came cantering down out of the woods when they saw my car pull into the driveway, and demanded to have fly spray on! 🀣 Now they are happily grazing undisturbed.

Colt starting can be tremendously rewarding. I love working with colts because it’s like a clean slate. All you have to do is show them the right things to do and they’re happy to do it. The first six weeks of a horse’s life under saddle is when he learns the most. He learns how to pack a rider, turn left, go right, stop, back up, soften, move off your leg, etc. He learns an incredible amount of information in the first six weeks under saddle. You want that to be good information, not bad, so that he learns to be soft, supple and relaxed, not pushy and disrespectful. - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod

Sorry about the lack of activity/ updates on this page the last couple of weeks. I've been full out potty training my youngest. Any parents on here knows that is all hands on deck and total attention on the kiddo.

I have a couple of horses lined up for training starting the end of April so there will be pictures of their progress along the way coming soon.

Also I will be offering riding lessons to any past students or family members of past students starting the end of May after school is out. Remember I am switching focus from lessons to training. With storm getting older and more arthritic and Mist losing her eyesight in one of her eyes, the work load and safety issue is a major concern.

If you are new and interested in lessons shoot me a PM and I can give you contact info of some instructors in the area.

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having! I know I have!!
