Sirocco

video
He is doing well.  He still has a ways to go yet.  Brian says that he will start to canter then all of a sudden he stops, he won't canter for long.  Then he still has to kick the heck out of him or use a tap on the rump to get him to move.  He is coming along.  Brian even hosed him down and he stood right there for the water bath!  I could not believe that.  He has come a long way, when I first took him to Brian, he didn't have any idea what to do.  Brian would saddle him and he would not move at all when he tried to get him to walk.

Hope you have a good week.

|He kinda looks like a big baby all wiggly, lol. Is he riding in a halter? And is he gonna put him over jumps, that would be fun!

He was on the wrong lead until the car went by then he picked up the correct lead, that might be why he was a little wiggly as Crystal said.He's coming along nicely though! Maybe he is basically lazy? That's not a bad thing!

He is in the very starting point, sirocco didn't even know how to move off of the bridle, and he didn't know what to do when Brian got in the saddle. Sirocco has a long way to go, Brian is just getting him used to having someone on his back. I couldn't even get in the saddle with him. He hasn't started on the refinement yet.

Well he shouldn't be scared of cars anyway I noticed he changed something after that...patience and time and lots of training. You want him back so you can ride:)
