How We Met

I don't own him....yet. We have a 22 acre field and when we build a barn we plan on getting a horse. I have been working with him every week. When he was a yearling he was the arabian halter champion. He was shipped to many different states and was finally green broke. I have always loved arabians and something about him just feels right. I've loved him ever since I first saw him. He is very nippy because his owner has 7 show horses in professional training and has absolutly no time for Exel. We have been working on different things like lunging, bathing, clipping, taking the bit, showmanship, picking up feet and lunging with a saddle. Suprisingly he took the bit perfectly! He loves to chew on anything (but he doesn't crib) so that wasn't a problem. He also clipped better than my horse! He put his head down so we could cut his 7 inch overgrown bridlepath and would even let us do his ears. He is such a sweet horse and loves people and attention. We still have a long way to go but he's a smart horse and a fast learner. He wants to please people he just doesn't know what's being asked of him.

*********UPDATE- **********
Exel's training is going really well! I worked with him again this morning! He was great! After he was fed and brushed, we took him to the round pen. I lunged him without a lunge line until he started to lick and chew. It didn't take nearly as long as last time! Every time I crossed his shoulder with the whip he would switch directions. When we were done lunging we thought we would try line driving. Obviously someone had done it with him because he did really well. I had never done line driving before and my 4-H advisor L.T. said that he did so well I could ride him!!!!!!!!!! =) I was so excited!!! L.T. longed him and I just walked but he was great! He has such a light touch on the bit but he would stop and balk whenever I asked him! He even had a nice headset! After that I took him back and gave him lots of treats!

Training
Hi, first off, your horse is beautiful.
As far as slowing down goes, here's a tip from my trainer.
Start loping in a large circle the gradually make the circle smaller. Keep loping as long as you can. Keep doing this and you should see an improvement. Be sure to do your circles in both directions.
Good luck.

ps
Here's a vote for you.

Training Tip
I am answering your question on how to slow down your horses canter. you can try to sit a little bit deeper in the saddle and sit up a little straighter while keeping steady contact with the reins, not puulling hard. heres a vote from me

HI, I have owned Fancy since March 2009. She was wild and hated humans when i got her. Now she is my doll baby. I would like to show her but i don't know how to train her to stand. All I have ever competed in was trail classes and Go As you Please class. The vet said she will be ready for me to ride this spring. About that crop. I would think you need to train him with that before using it on him. In an enclosed area first desinsitize him to that crop then teach him to go forward when you tap him with it. If you hide it he might learn to fear the crop or you. Teaching him what to do when you use it is better. And he won't fear it. Practice running with him on lead also. When I did this with Fancy this past spring she wanted to play;) He will get it through practice and persistence and you won't need that crop and that is even better. I don't know how, but yesterday Fancy pawed up the frozen ground, it seemed frozen soooo hard to me. Yeah for CHRISTmas! Fancy and Frances leave this "We are all kids at heart when it comes to CHRISTmas" vote.

Thanks for the vote. I do show Jethro, but Suede is too old. I think a crop is fine to use. He might not like it, but it should encourage him. Here's a vote for you. Have a great Saturday!

Hi Exel!
Thanks so much for the vote! Here's one back! Today was very cold outside! I went to see the horses though. Lightning was lying down, and I sat on his back lightly, and then I coaxed him into lying on his side and putting his head down. I sat and stroked his neck like I used to when he was only a little baby. I miss that a lot, but then again, I'm eager for him to grow into the fine gelding I know he'll be so we can start riding and accomplish a lot together. We're gonna make this lifetime and this partnership count. Well here's a vote, talk to you soon!

Hi Exel!
Hey guys! So sorry about this c/p, but I have a good reason! =) Well, like Ferina's mom may have told you (Thanks Chandler!), my power went out yesterday (Wednesday) at about noon, so I was unable to get on! Sorry bout that, hope it doesn't happen again! It was just SO windy and rainy, trees fell over, and crushed the power lines. But they got that fixed a while ago earlier this evening. Anyway though, I finally got to see the horses since I didn't go to school yesterday (and won't go tomorrow)! Fancy seemed really intolerant of Lightning's mischief and even struck out at him with both hind feet! I have it recorded too! My poor baby boy! But other than that, we had an alright time together though i didn't ride because it was SOOOOO cold! I cannot wait to ride though! I'm gonna ride the next chance I get! Well here's a vote, talk to you soon!

Here's a Wednesday vote.
Sorry, I have not been on lately...very busy!!
So Tuesday, I had my riding lesson. I rode Echo and we didnt really do much because there was alot of new beginner students. We did the basics and played musical stalls and practiced the key hole(my time was 12.25 seconds). And the one of the new girls fell off, but she wasnt hurt, it was her first time cantering a horse.
I had fun tho. Lady is doing good, she has been sleeping laying down alot and I hope to gets so pics of her doing that. She so cute!! I have not rode her in a while caz of bad weather =[ I wish I had an indoor arena...
Oh, all most forgot to tell you guys... Have you ever heard of mini pigs?? My family is going to start raising\breeding mini pigs in the spring (and chickens too)!! Well, I hope you guys are doing good. I got to go get ready for ANOTHER suprise B-day party for my BBF Gracie, she's turning 13yr. Friday. So yeah, wish me luck that this goes out well.

Our family decorated the tree yesterday, my baby boy really enjoyed this! But I couldn't find my outside decorations:( Fancy was so sweet when I went to feed her. She rears and twirls around when she sees me coming in her direction. And I wondered if it was a test of "Whose in Charge", I discovered by her actions when I get to her, she only misses me and wants me near. Because when I get there she is submisive and sooo sweet, when I get to her she gently blows into my nostrils, which means she accepts me. And I blow back, then puts her head close to me and she is just sooo sweet.

How does your horse greet you? Here is a "Christmas day will be here before you know it" vote.

__________________Update on Cochise___________________

Hello everyone! Wow, it’s had been forever since I was on here, my apologizes to all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I sure did, I really enjoyed my break off school, it gave me extra time to spend to with the horses. And now at my house and barn we are decorating for Christmas, my favorite time of year, only I hate riding in the cold! Ha-ha.
Cochise seems to be limping on his right front leg – not good. Because, he’s left leg is the one with the hurt tendon, and it also bugs him some. I try to keep him in his stall, to prevent any further injury, but he gets bored easily so I also need to keep him in the pasture for sometime as well, even though it seems to bug him when he walks:/
But he is still in high spirits! :] so I am grateful for that. Thanks for all the votes, and blogs you all have left me, even with my absence from horse channel. I hope everyone is doing well. And please, if you have any advice about Cochise, and what you think I should do with his low-patience attitude, let me know please!!! I want him to be the best horse ever come springtime! :]
Thanks again for the votes!

Love, Love, Love,
Brooke & Cochise

Fancy and Frances here leaving you an it's been wonderful reining as November HOTM vote. It has been a lovely Fri and Sat here in NC. We hope for more of this pleasant weather today. Both days we hung out in the yard with Fancy. Last night when I put her up my boys decided to take their Jack Russel, Bindi, for a walk up the street. Oh, this got to Fancy. She saw them walking toward the street and she twirled, looked at me, looked at them, reared, looked at me, lifted her head over the gate and looked at me. I knew she wanted to go. Fancy was saying come on and my boys were saying come on Mom. I felt bad, but it was getting dark and I had to put the water hose up, lock the shed, etc. I promised to accompany them another day because I don't like to walk Fancy out of the yard after dark. All in all our weekend has been great. We hope your weekend is all that and more!

i had so much fun today!! i rode buttercup whle teaching a walk, trot, canter lesson. we divided into two teams and did relay races. had 2 cones at one end of the arena. each team member took turns. trot down the arena to the cone, circle it and canter back. everyone did well. then, this afternoon, i took my shetland, godiva, out for a cart ride across the road. drove her around this track that surrounds a retention pond (for flood water when it rains). she broke into a gallop and it was sooo much fun!
