Jeanne - yes, I've been accepted to vet school and will be starting at WSU this fall. :)

Here's the sorrel colt tonight, rounding up the other colts because it's so much easier than catching and leading everyone in... :P

And here he's going English, took a lesson with a former instructor and he's as close to an English horse as I have at the moment (everything else is far too green).

Mom's been taking them for me, I edit them and then upload them. Most of my videos go to Facebook but I'm not putting a FB link on a public site :P... so I put the ones I want to show to people other than FB friends on YouTube.

Here's the sorrel one last time - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGhePhddsYM

Think he's passed Attitude Adjustment 101 with flying colors. Time for him to find a new home.

It would be a sure sale if the "girl" went along with the horse! OBTW - the horse looks great too. You've done an excellent job.

Sorrel colt found a good home. Got two more to sell and then all the rest that I'm riding belong to other people.

Bay colt at 40 rides... still a lotta horse.

Dun colt at 30 rides... this one's a 3 y/o, had been tied to a post but other than that unhandled and a stud when I acquired him. This colt won't win any beauty contests but he's a really, really nice ride.

i really like that dunn colt.
looks like he has more than 30 rides on him, you must have put some miles on him.
you always start colts in a snaffle?
do you ever use a hackamore ?

Don't own a hackamore but I'd be willing to give it a try.

Dun colt - not really. I frequently just spend 20-30 minutes on him and call it good. If we trail ride I'll spend a couple hours on him, but I don't ride him hard. He was kept in a 30x30 pen for a year and a half before I got him and underfed, didn't have much condition or muscle tone so I've been riding him light and giving him good feed. Some weeks I only ride him 3 times. He's just got a good attitude that hasn't changed at all as he's put on weight and gotten in shape.

Here's the dun with a slicker... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avZ_rBzZ7ds

I saw the two horses you had on Youtube back a couple weeks ago. The first colt went alot better because it looked like you left it alone in front more. The second one looks like there is gonna be a little too much resistance there in the bridle and I would get up off the back a little more so you don't create any more resistances. Figured you wanted some input since you asked us earlier so I am just adding some help.

What is the price on the dun colt? Hrstrader@yahoo.com I'd like to have him for a personal horse. Great videos btw.

hayray- it depends on the day with that bay colt. The video I had on there a couple weeks ago he rode quiet from the start. The last video he's a little hotter; some days he's quiet, some days I'd like a "restart game" button. I am asking a little more of him now and he doesn't always like being told what to do. He's got quite a ways to go yet. Dun colt is really light, I like my reins short (remnants of English days) but I don't use too much contact on the bit, not seeing or feeling the resistance you're talking about. I like my seat on the saddle unless I'm jumping fences, what exactly are you suggesting?

hrstrader- if you're serious, check your inbox.
