hey! Welcome to horsechannel! Any questions? Can't wait to see pics of your mare! Do you do a lot of showing? 6 months ago, after four years of babysitting, I bought my first horse! He hadn't been abused just more of neglected. All he knew was if I kick him really hard he should run and if I pull back really hard on the reins he should stop. He's a 10 year old arabian gelding. He's got such a sweet gentle personality. And he loves to learn! For the first 3 months everything I did with him was groundwork. From free lunging in the round pen, to showmanship, to ground driving. And I'm so glad I did! Building a relationship though groundwork with him has taught us both so much! Before I got him he had never been fed a treat from you hand, never been bathed, never clipped never shown and he's done all of that now! A few weeks ago I took him to his first show! I ride english and was in an equitation over poles class, a showmanship class and a trail class. We came dead last in showmanship =) which was ok cause he doesn't know how to pivot. But my main goal was just to get him out in the ring and used to being at shows without freaking out. He did so much better than I expected! Even when I was riding him he was calm and focused on what I was asking him to do! And the weather was awful! Soooo windy and cold and rainy! It was even hailing for a while! In our trail class we were doing our extended trot to the mailbow and when we were up right next to it, it blew over! It just about hit him on the butt and he kinda freaked and we almost took out the judge! lol =) It was kinda funny. And I got it on tape! Sorry this blog is so long! But I have a quick training question and I was wondering if you had any tips. His canter is very fast unbalanced and uncollected. I can't get him to slow down without breaking. Someone told me to do lots of circles and that'ss slow him down. But I can't make a circle at that almost hand gallop. I took him in a smaller arena where he's forced to go in a somewhat small circle. He slows down and collects nicely but I'm afraid when I get back in the big arena he'll speed up again. He'll trot or walk as soon as I ask him to I think he just gets excited. Any tips? Thanks a ton!

Come visit me, Crystal new pics!, <3*Ditto*<3 check out our new pics!! & Exel ~PAGE CLOSED! SEE SUMMER!!!!!~.
