Reviewed yielding, leading, backing, sending and prep exercises

Horse Image

Kai has made great progress and successfully completed every component in this 60 Day Challenge proving herself to be a quick and willing learner. She has gone from being relatively difficult to catch to easy, from slightly reactive to much more confident and relaxed. Under saddle she was prone to lameness that was then linked to a conformation issue. Hence she is adoptable as a companion horse only, not to be ridden. That said, she will be an amazing partner for a lucky someone looking for a rewarding relationship with their horse. She is truly looking for her trustworthy leader with a light but confident touch to help her build her confidence and to appreciate her desire to please and willingness to try.
