Traded in my FEI work to back to my roots with my favorite thing: YOUNG HORSE BACKING!
This fancy lil fellow got his 1st official ride as a rising dressage horse yesterday. After a bit of a rocky start, we worked on basics: weight & weight aids, steering, stopping with a little bit of forward trotting. We even trotted through a puddle! 😍😍 Rue is a out of a registered Appy mare, by an unapproved Trakehner stallion, absolute proof that unconventional bloodlines with correct basics have equal opportunities!
He's been raised by my best friend Missy since he was 7 months old. She's done an exceptional job with him training him up to this point & I'm SERIOUSLY impressed! I'm so lucky that she trusted me enough to work her sweet boy! He has such a bright future. I can't wait to help continue his education! Hopefully materiale classes, AWS/ATA registrations, & maybe in-hand classes... 🙃 #RueTheDay #SuperTrakaloosa #BringingUpTheNextGen
