Back from our first class A show after only 4 halter lessons over 3 weeks; I still have a lot to learn and so does he, but I am so pleased with how far he has come--and we came home with 8 ribbons! 3 blues in halter, 2 seconds and 2 thirds; and in SHIH stallions of all ages we came in second, and he was the youngest in the class.
The Rasmussens are incredible, I love how happy Elitist is to set up for halter. Extremely pleased with their training, and so thrilled with this colt!

This is great. I see a partnership/trust between horse and handler. Calm eyes on the horse. Maybe one could try lengthening the sides of the show halter to allow the nosepiece to come down a little toward his nostrils, just a little, to look better on his face. Maybe it will not do that to fit correctly. Love the chest on him, so what they are doing is perfect. Would also love to see a class (trail- in- hand, obstacle course) with more show horses going "over the bridge", and other "in-hand" tasks, to see the amount of training and trust that has occurred between handler and horse, not just halter. We did open showmanship, and I think this horse could do that. I also would like to say that I really prefer this horse to his sire, who I saw here at the World Cup. This horse has substance and depth in certain areas, even at his age, that to me his sire did not, and I attribute that to the influence of his dam, and her substance, and the horses in her ancestry......I agree that what the trainers are doing seems to really agree with him. His mane and tail, and his expressions, and his overall happiness. Congrats. (4 of us said congrats)
