Completed Advanced 60-Day Challenge

Horse Image

Tessa is now ready for adoption (to the right adopter). She has become so much calmer and more confident in herself. She also has a better understanding of softness and is more responsive to pressure. Tessa has gained so much knowledge over these 60-days to better prepare herself for her future. She now excels on trail rides and being ridden in the arena. When I first started working here, she was not in training and had been standing around for years. These 60-days have helped progress her training to prepare her for adoption.
