I hope you are well and enjoying the beautiful Fall weather! I’ve been a busy beaver, even though I am still not sewing. Instead, I have been filling my time with horses!!!
My riding instructor has been letting me work with her 5 year old Appy-Thoroughbred named Bob. Bob, is a special horse. He’s still young and has major baby brain. He also is a lazy, lazy boy and prefers to cuddle rather than work. This, of course, presents a huge problem, because when one wants him to work, he bucks and kicks to get out of it. This behavior comes from his last owner who let him get away with it. So, we have been doing lots of lunging and ground work to build his respect. Followed by riding him and continuing to enforce the respect. The results have been amazing! I’ve been working with Bob for a month and we have gone from a horse that wanted to kick me to this….
He is my buddy, follows me everywhere, does whatever I ask him and looooves his after ride cuddles!
I seriously loooove this horse. I go out to the barn almost everyday to work with him and he is doing soooo well! I’m so proud of his progress.
