Yay Hunter! First time riding Shelby.
They still have a lot of work ahead of them, but these small steps are what build confidence in the both of them.
I chose Shelby with him in mind and the whole family fell in love with her back in March during my Wild Horse Gentling Workshop.
She's come a long way since then and he has helped at every step.
I think what makes Hunter successful with his horse, is the fact that he is consistent. Every day when he comes to see her, he is the same kid who saw her last week. He doesn't bring his bad days and take it out on her. Ive never seen him angry or frustrated with her, even when they make mistakes and face challenges. That gives Shelby confidence in him and helps her feel safe under his leadership, which is necessary if she's expected to learn new things and become a great riding partner. #horsetraining #mustangtraining #tehachapi #saveahorserideamustang #lifesaverswildhorserescue #wildhorse #mustanghorse
