On the trail sightseeing! One of them had better watch the trail...don't cha think???
Oh Oh...looks like Little Lady needs a photo opp training lesson!
Hay Little Lady...Auntie Rose needs you to pose pretty!!!
Little Lady thinks that I did not see her sticking her tongue out at me...but I did!!!
So now that we have an acceptable pose... the training session is over. Look at her feet...she did not move them because while turning her head I closed the gate for her to go forward. She is a pretty smart girl and I hope she and I will both learn during our summer together. I believe I have seen her worst and because she listens to me when I cue her, I hope she will grow out of some of her angst of dark places. That is really the only issue I have had with her. I am not counting the little crowhop bucks I get from time to time cause they are only when we lope and are not in the front. All young horse's seem to have that issue, you just gotta work with them to get them out of it. Jesse didn't buck...instead he thought it was a race and would try to pass the lead horse.Of course that can be frightening for the rider to all of a sudden be in a fast run. Which do you think is worse, crowhopping or racing???
A spring desert bloom for you to enjoy!
