Horses That Have Been Trained:
Babygirl is a QH mare. A friend of mine owns her. When I met melissa she was bed ridden because Babygirl had become nervous while being asked to stand still and had reared over on to melissa. Melissa had fractured her hips and broke her pelvis bone. I was asked to work with her and get her to stand without having anxiety. So I came into the situation thinking she was dangerous and I should use caution. I was wrong she did have her issues but she wanted a rider to trust. I trained her in 4 weeks and she is now children safe and a complete dead head. She is a horse, like many, that need to trust you and rely that you are going to do no wrong to them. When working with these horses time is a healing factor.
Kody is a champagne Tennessee Walking Horse mare. She came to me in the summer of 2011. She was broke to ride but she had ground manner issues and she was spooky on the trails. She also did not trailer well. I trained her for the summer and got her trail ready. The owner had to move so I was preparing her to be sold. Kody was trained in one month. I then sold her in two weeks to a wonderful home. She was my first gaited horse that I trained. She was brought with silver to be sold.
I was originally going to look at Dexter to possibly buy him, for my personal horse. I was told by his owner he was trained by the Amish and they did a poor job of it. In my mind I was thinking that if the owner paid $600 for 30 days Dexter would at least have some training. Well to my surprise he did not. When I first looked at him I fell in love with him. He had been abused by who ever trained him and was very hard to control under saddle. He had no respect for his rider and could care less if you were riding him or not. His emotional scars were very deep and it took me 30 days just to get him to trust me and to start riding. I spent another month putting time on him and he slowly became a normal horse. His owner has now become bonded with Dexter and he is one horse I will never forget.
I was hired to Tune up an appendix QH mare. She has been trained previously and left to sit in the pasture. I have had many rides on her and she has had bucked a few times. She was my personal summer project. She was to be trained to lunge properly and to go out on trails alone. I put enough miles on her that her owners now feel confident enough to take her out to spend time with her.
Choco is a Rocky Mountain that has come to me on 7/5/13 to have a tune-up done. Very nice horse. The owner want tons of miles put on him so when they ride on the Labor Day ride he will not be rusty. He is gaited and had been a pleasure to ride. I have had so many compliments on him.
Zip is a 13h pony gelding that has come to me on 7/13/13 to be broke out. He is a little guy. He has a nice persoanlity but is very fearful of human objects. Come along great. Gave him his first bath of his life and he did wonderful. The owner wants him broke out to be trail riding within 30 days.
