An education for Cassidy & Julie

I stopped by Julie's place last week as she was having Jon Ensign (from the Colt Starting Clinic) come out and evaluate Cassidy's training level and potential issues. Since Cassidy was adopted by Julie, she has ridden him a bit, but he has also bucked a couple of times. She has had him seen by the chiropractor to make sure it's not a pain issue.

While Jon didn't ride Cassidy or saddle him up, after working with him for a short bit, his initial thoughts were that of stubborness by Cassidy. Julie walked away from the lesson with some ground exercises to do with Cassidy, getting him to bend softer and be more pliable.

Jon also re-taught some of the ground exercises he did at the Colt Starting Clinic, which was great! Here's a few pics:
