Class' New Trainer

This stunning 6 year old sorrel 14.1 hand mare was rescued from the feedlot in May 2006. She has been started under saddle and is available for adoption to the perfect home.

Class' New Trainer

Postby Juliane on Sun Jul 29, 2007 3:23 pm

I'm almost ashamed to announce that Class has moved to Red Barn so that Ally can continue her training. I hate to feel like I failed with Class, but really, I think I just have too much on my plate right now. There is nothing wrong with Class - she is beautiful, athletic and easy going. Yet, I've never had that 'drive' to go out and work with her. Which is a shame, as she's shown with Ally in the last couple of days that she has quite a bit of potential.

Anyways, Class is now temporarily living at Red Barn. She appears quite happy with the change of events in her life and Ally also seems to be happy to take on Class. I dropped Class off yesterday and while I was there, Ally worked with her for a short bit.

Class was too cute and didn't offer up much of a fuss. I believe she will advance in leaps and bounds with Ally's consistent training. Thanks again, Ally! You're a life saver!

I love this little mare, she's adorable and my favorite color!

What kind of saddle is that? It looks like it'd be great on older low backed horses.

hey cat-

its an enlightened equitation part treed saddle, called the "Fhoenix" Heather Moffett created it.

the pad is the key- its a super thickly filled pad- filled with cork granules. before you place it on the horse, you shake it out. then place the saddle on top. the saddle is mostly memory foam. but basically, the cork fills in where it needs to- usually where there is atrophy or an imbalance. it also create phenomenal saddle stability for wider backed horses.

www.enlightenedequitation.com

one of my students uses it on her QH- every other saddle in the barn feels like it lists off to the left on him, but the cork suberpanel fixes that on this horse- and the saddle stays even. its pretty cool.

If you want to take a closer look at it- you can always come visit us :) we're in Renton :)

Class and I both would love to see ya. Faithy too!

Juliane, please do not for one second feel ashamed that you transfered Class to Ally. I think it takes a very smart trainer to do what is in the best interest of each horse - you saw that Ally gets along great with Class and had the guts to follow through on your instincts....I say bravo to you! I don't know many trainers who would be as honest as you are!!! And Ally, thank you so much for taking Class. I can see that you are going to be great for Class' outgoing and very entertaining personality :lol: She is a wonderful young horse with a whole life ahead of her and alot of love to give. She will make someone very happy someday!!
