Training Updates

Tinka, Sheba, and Traveler have now been in training under saddle for one month!  Shaw says that Traveler is a clown and really enjoys his training time.  He did not even react when Shaw put the saddle on him for the first time.  Nor did he react when he was ridden!  He is working on his walk - trot and transitions.  Apparently Traveler has a bit of get up and go!  Sheba turned into a rodeo queen when she was put under saddle for the first time.  Even though Sheba has had the same training, manners, baby lessons, etc. as Traveler, she had a little more to express than the others.  She is doing great now and is also working on her walk - trot and transitions.  Little was known about Tinka when we purchased her as a broodmare.  We don't think she had been handled previously.  It is always harder to start adult horses than the ones you have raised.  However, we believe that all of our horses should be trained to ride or drive.  It is great being a broodmare.  But, it is better to have a broodmare that you can also put in the Christmas Parade.
