A long overdue update on the Roryman...

Postby Nickie on Fri May 02, 2008 4:19 pm

I know I have been MIA for a bit, but I wanted to update you all on the little man and his progress. (I also know this is the wrong section, but I didn't want anyone to miss it) I just talked to Pat, the lady who owns him now, and she said he is doing wonderful. They haven't been using him for the kids yet since he has been having regular Dressage lessons to put a good foundation on him. They are wanting to use him for the kids that have potential to become really good riders. Walk,trot, canter and maybe some low jumping.

So anyway, they are still "over the moon" (her words) about how wonderful he is and how much potential he has. She was even raving about his perfect trot. Apparently when he comes for his lessons, crowds gather around and ooh and ahh. Pat has apparently taught him to bow now as well. He is in the final stages of perfecting his "technique". She loves to just play with him and love on him and says he is just a "doll-baby" and a "sweetheart".

The trainer can't get over how smart and level headed he is. She said he picks up everything so fast and just takes it all in stride. I will be heading over there either Friday or Saturday to visit and take some photos.

Last but not least, I definitely want to thank Juliane for all of the work she did with him. He would never be where he is now without her and I don't think anyone else could have worked that kind of magic on him. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :D

Thanks for the update. It's great that things have worked out so beautifully for him. He really is something special. Maybe your role was to get him to his perfect home.
