B's Introduction

B is a 9 year old red roan gelding. He was captured as an unhandled stallion on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. With 60 days training and lots of love and gentling under his belt, watch as he gains more confidence and experience to bloom into a perfect riding horse!

B's Introduction

Postby Juliane on Mon Jul 31, 2006 8:36 am

I got to meet "B" on Friday night as he arrived late in the night. He is a beautiful, stocky red roan gelding. He was adopted off the Yakima Feedlot last May, where he had been captured off the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and sent for slaughter. He has since been gelded, had at least 60 days professional training, and been in the care of a loving adoptive family.

However, he tends to spook easily, causing unexpected behavior, including bucking. He is now with me to gain experience, confidence and lots and lots of miles, so that he can find his forever home.

It was wonderful to meet Juliane this weekend. I dropped B off late Friday night at her house and then stayed throughout the weekend to observe a groundworking clinic that she took him to. I was amazed at the love and committement that Juliane has for her horses. She is truly an incredible horse woman. It was very hard to leave B, as I have mixed emotions over him. I love him deeply, but am very scared of him. Therefore, continuing to ride him would have created a distaster. I know he will receive the utmost care and love with Juliane and develop under saddle with her as she continues his training. I look forward to the updates and thank Juliane not only for taking on this new challenge, but for making an incredible new friend as well. Sarah

90 days professional training

Postby Horsefly on Mon Jul 31, 2006 5:05 pm

After 90 days of professional training this guy should be near perfect! Where was he trained? Do you know if he came back from training skidish or is that something he has picked up since then? Another reason horse and horse owner should be in training together at least for the last few weeks so that they know what the horse has been taught and how. Things that make you say hmm

Isn't Warm Springs where Margie came from?

I thought so - except Margie was BLM and "B" is from the Indian reservation. Maybe there are 2 different "Warm Springs"?

There is a bible/summer camp up north in Snohomish or Skagit County called Warm Springs and the Indian reservation is in eastern WA I think. So you have to determine if they were talking about the camp, or the rez. Just a guess, though.

Hey Horsefly, B was a wild/unhandled stallion for eight years. Therefore the skitish behavior. He also came from the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon, not the summer camp. :wink: You can read info on the tribes at www.warmsprings.com :lol: Sarah
