  1. Great advice from everyone here Sarah...This situation was a great opportunity for you to step up and protect her (which it sounds like you did) Remember that if our horses know that we have got their back that they will be able to feel safe with us. I reckon you would have won a lot of brownie points over this, well done for protecting her And...regardless of weather she was in season or not it sounds like the other horse has a bit of personal space learning to do so make sure that he never gets too close if you have to go through his paddock again. If you are consistent with this, it wont be long before he takes no notice of the two of you.
  2. Congratulations Aileen and Monty!! I am so totally with you - I wouldn't be happy if my horse isn't either. Enjoy your Level 2 journey, you are going to love it!

    Facing The Truth

    Great reading Tracy! Looking forward to reading more
  7. ...and there is the trail training checklist to follow when you are ready to start working on it.
  8. Hey Judy - it can be very scary when our horses get like this, I totally know where you are coming from. The first horse I took through the programme (Dolly) could not handle trail riding at all. In fact the first time I ever took her out for a ride she totally bolted on me and all I could do was hang on. Fortunately QS came into my life not long after that happened. There was no way I was going to go out trail riding on her after that and I focused on ticking off the boxes and even after completing level 2 I didn't feel confident to go out with her until we were about half way through our level 3 - that is how much she scared me! I didn't get it better by trail riding, I did it through ticking off the boxes and following the programme. In the end we could trail ride bareback and bridle less - how cool is that! And now with Bandito who had done lots of endurance riding in his past is not confident to go trail riding, so it's back to ticking off the boxes with him! I just wanted you to know that it is possible, focus on the things you can do and keep working towards your goal. You will get there.
  9. Wow Chrissy! You have both had an amazing journey so far. You have done an amazing job with Eli, thank you for sharing your thoughts.
  10. That's an awesome picture Sarah! I am looking forward to meeting her one day.
