Challenge Finale!

Horse Image

Poppy completed her advanced challenge in costume! Who would have believed she would stand quietly enough to glitter her hooves, paint her body, and braid her mane? She was also completely chill about me being in a costume! We still have plenty to work on as I tend to get tense when I ride the more explosive horses. I need to relax and ask slower so I don\\\'t rush the horse. Poppy\\\'s ground skills are amazing and she is able to be handled and riden by others! She does need more under saddle time to get through her fight back at leg pressure. I am currently using verbal cues to ask for trot/jog as leg pressure can result in a bite or a kick at the rider. We have not progressed to canter/lope under saddle but she does all three gates nicely when sending left and right. She catches, ties, crossties, stands for bathing, farrier, and vet and has over all become a good horse citizen. He next step is getting a few more rides then taking her out on Trail! Poppy will soon be ready for adoption.

Ground work

Horse Image

Worked on approach and retreat touching. If she looked at or reached out to touch me I would walk away and take pressure off. Started off with no equipment, then moved to just holding a lead rope, but not touching her with it. She was more nervous when I had the rope. Was able to wipe down her left side with fly spray wipes, but would not let me on her right side

11/14/2018 02:23

Groomed

Horse Image

Tried everything without a halter today, and she did much better. She stood to be groomed, let me rub her with the stick, and rub her with the fly spray bottle without running away. She was very relaxed

11/07/2018 02:55

Catching

Horse Image

Was very nervous when I entered her stall, so I waited inside for about 15 minutes until she relaxed and approached me. She ran out into her paddock when I opened the gate. It took a while to catch her, she was very uncomfortable with the halter going over her nose. When I did get it on, I worked on touching her nose and face until she would lick and chew. She did relax a lot, and then stood to be groomed. She seemed to have “forgotten” how to lead today, even though she normally leads fine. I worked with her until she lead a little smoother.

10/24/2018 01:56

Haltering

Horse Image

She was very nervous today. She almost ran me over when I opened her paddock gate trying to get out. She was avoiding me in her paddock, turning away from me and “hiding” in the corners. I moved her feet until she would turn and look at me, and then I would turn my back to her to take the pressure off. I tried to halter her 3 times, but she would bolt when I would get the halter to her nose. After an hour and a half, I was finally able to halter her after running her with the halter and rubbing her nose until she licked and chewed. Once caught, I brushed her but she was very nervous about the brushes. She stood quietly to be unhaltered, and did not run away once the halter was off

10/22/2018 12:13

Ground work

Horse Image

Worked on leading, backing, and yielding hindquarters. Cleaned out front hooves. Got mats out of tail completely. She stood quietly to be groomed. Overall good session

10/19/2018 12:09

Haltered

Horse Image

Haltered for the first time since her evaluation. Groomed, worked on getting the mats out of her tail. She stood nicely, although she’s scared of bottles of any kind (spray bottles, detangler bottles). Worked on leading, backing, and picking up front hooves

10/05/2018 02:56

Haltering

Horse Image

Attempted but was unable to halter her. After 30 minutes I was able to rub her shoulder with the halter. Has regressed since the beginning of the week.

10/03/2018 02:55

Evaluation

Horse Image

Officially evaluation for #ponyup4hope. She was very uncomfortable with me using the stick and string to move her around her pen. Was not able to touch her with the halter

10/01/2018 03:33

Grooming

Horse Image

All of the horses were very energetic today, running around and playing a lot, so poppy was also energetic and nervous about the other horses running. I just did a very calm, quiet grooming session with her. She let me brush out her tail for the first time, as she’s been nervous about me being at her hindquarters until today

09/28/2018 01:04

Haltered

Horse Image

Gets better everyday. Backed up very easily and quietly. Let me pick up and hold front hooves. Worked on sending in a circle. She seems to know how to lunge once she understood that I wanted her to move out. A lot more relaxation today

09/26/2018 03:23

Haltered

Horse Image

Haltered very easily today. Lowered head on the first try. Groomed all over. Rubbed with stick and string. Worked on yielding hindquarters using stick, was nervous but settled. Backed with wiggling lead rope. Picked up feet with stick and string, rubbed down front legs with hands

09/14/2018 01:37

Haltered

Horse Image

Haltered and groomed. Haltering is becoming easier. She was scared of the fly spray, so slowly introduced her to that. Took halter off and sent her out in her paddock, working on keeping her attention on me, not turning hindquarters to me. Worked on standing and facing me to be haltered. Overall very nervous and uncomfortable with pressure being put on her.

09/05/2018 02:07

Haltering

Horse Image

Was able to halter her twice quickly and easily. She stood quietly to be groomed. Was very uncomfortable with fly spray, so I sprayed it away from her just so she could hear the noise. She lead easily around her paddock and let me unhalter her nicely

08/06/2018 03:25
