Max: April 20

Max | April 18

This week, Max was saddled for the first time & it couldn't have gone better! Under saddle, we continued to work on the groundwork exercises from last week, with everything making further improvement. I also added in a saddle-specific exercise, Popping the Stirrups. On Wednesday, Max's second saddling went just as well as the first!

We weren't able to do anything on Tuesday with the extreme wind. The geldings were lucky to get out of the wind on the backside of the machine shed.


If all continues to go well at the beginning of next week, I anticipate his first ride on Wednesday. I typically spend the first three days in the round pen before moving out into the arena. If the weather & wind cooperates, I'll pull out my Pivo to catch some video, too.


In maximizing training time during the short week, conformation-style photos will come with next week's update on Thursday night.
