Free's first pony experience



I ride Pistol again in with Free but this time I have the halter and a very long rope on Freedom. I start with just riding up to him again. Then I ride away but put a little feel on the rope. Free plants his feet. I wait. It is the test of time. I move slightly to the side and he follows us. This happens a few times and I am able to convince Free to follow me and Pistol a little bit. I am doing this bareback because I really don't want to worry about all this rope getting wrapped around my saddle somehow. When I pony with the saddle I will switch to a shorter rope. If Freedom pulls on the rope now I can let him reel out 22 feet! He is doing very well. He thinks I play odd games with him. I put my legs on his body when I ride beside him and he handles it fine. I sack him out with a few different objects then I quit for the day.

I am thrilled to read the updates on your work with Freedom. Thank you for the posts.

You are making fantastic progress!

Can you comment on Freedom's physical appearance, compared to when you brought him home?

Best!

Watching you and Freedom work today was so inspiring, considering the week I had. Your work as a trainer gives me hope and enlightens me as a human being. I also learn so much from you so that I can learn how to build a better relationship with my own horses.....thank you for being there with me and Satin last week when she had her feet done....
Freedom is gorgeous...you are both building a beautiful relationship....
