Day 15 – Half Way! Thank you so much for following along! This horse is so intelligent, and I am loving every day that we have had together. Today we spent longer than usual grooming and then had a short bareback ride and worked on suppling. he stretched down, left and right at walk and trot(first trot bareback btw).
He has calmed down so much since I first started working him. I think he really appreciates the routine, and I am so proud that he has chosen to trust me 🙂
In 15 days alone we have gone from unable to canter on a lunge line, to cantering under saddle in a circle, on the straight and even over a cavaletti! From tight and nervous to relaxed and offering stretches! From never having stepped in a creek to pretty darn close to swimming!
Such a cool breed. And yes- this is a pretty normal breed standard 🙂
Please reach out to me or Cindy Sither if you have any interest in riding, breeding or owning an Akhal Teke!
