Well I forgot to post on the blog tuesday but i did post in the forum we got our first trot the other day. I needed a few taps of the crop to get the point across but he was soo good ...

Today we didn't even need the crop.. he did so well maintaining the trot while circling and a few direction changes. Each time he picked it up real quickly .. and his...


More Firsts

Well today we had a few firsts .. the day he bucked me off was the first time he was lunged with another horse being ridden in the ring ...

- was his first time being lunged while another horse was being lunged ... my 3yr old AY-rab was better behaved than the older, multi champion QH. :D

-His first spook ... nothing big it was incredibly windy...


Ah HA!

Well seems like the light bulb clicked today.
Yesterday turning and circling was good but he was a typical green horse in the sense that he wouldn't walk straight lines, make a proper circle or turn quite as quickly. today .. POOF he's walking straight lines and circling and turning .. well not quite like a pro but deffinately much better... it...


Simple Progress

Day four under saddle and he was very good. really doing well on turning and walking forward and his stops are getting quite a bit better... especially the one rein ones.

Today mounting was easier, my sister-in-law/trainer held him and walked him forward a few steps and we were good to go ... It really seems that getting those first few stride in makes...

Why can't people do their jobs? I sent my horse for 60 days of under saddle training and he came home with one week under saddle (partially my fault for not being more vocal) .. and all but one ride wasn't a real ride, he was led around a few times with someone on his back ...

Now normally I wouldn't complain or have even sent him off for...


The journey has begun

Well it's been awhile since I've posted anything here on my blog so why not begin with keeping track of our under saddle training.

Khon arrived at the new boarding barn on Saturday afternoon and spent the afternoon settling in and figuring things out

Yesterday I put him on the lunge and he was deffiantely excited and feeling good .. it was the...

Well it's been quite rainy here the last few days so Khon's been in .. today started out misty and then the sky's split and the sun came out and it's nice and warm.

Khon had his feet done today and he was VERY well behaved ... considering he had been in for the past few days and he's only had his feet done about a half dozen times, he...

Well Khon got clipped today and he stood lie such a good boy. He just got half his neck, chest and just behind the girth area done, but he didn't even flinch. He was way more interested in the falling hair than anything else. It was the perfect day to clip him too since it's about 70+ degrees and should remain warm for a few more days. His shoulder...


It's been awhile

Things have been hard and stressful this past month but we're back on track.

Khon was moved yesterday to the other farm so now we have a roundpen :PerspectMA19366318-0001:
He loaded like a champ, which was a shock since he hasn't been in a trailer since February and that was his only shipping experiance, walked right on like he did it every...


Easy Day

Posted by KhonsMom , 06 October 2009 - - - - - - · 364 views

We had another easy day today .. Khon was SOOOO muddy that I couldn't get it all off of him and the last thing I need is him to asociate the saddle with any kind of pain ... so I just lunged him today ... plus I did new exersizes in PT so I was sore.
I just lunged Khon today, got some video and then worked on his bending, following a feel and moving...
