Well, I have a confession to make. Because I could see I just wasn't going to have the time to get this horse going the way I wanted to, I elected to send her to a girl to put 60 days on her. This girl is an incredible trainer, and honest to a fault with her time. She took nearly 3 months to put the 60 days on (she got married, had a honeymoon, and the horse was down a bit with cinch sores). She rode and roped off this mare at brandings, pasture roped, and used her for her day job at South Peace Stock Farms, so this horse got a lot of hours under saddle in her time with Jessica.
I have can not believe the handle she has on this horse. She now has an amazing flat spin, a sliding stop, goes from a dead run to backing up at a high rate of speed in one easy motion, side passes, all the good stuff. All the while with amazing collection and a feather light touch. All in all I just couldn't be happier. I figure it was $1600 well spent.
Did I mention she taught her to lay down??
You may notice she's a little slimmer now
