Thanks for asking Sara! I went over to Juliane's yesterday and we spent an hour or so working with Wy. Juliane put her saddle on Wy and then with minimal issues, also put a bridle on her :lol:

It was sunny but still quite cold outside and the ground was frozen in places, so we didn't do alot of work, but enough for her to get tired :lol: I think Wy really enjoyed the attention and seemed to just take everything in stride. She was very mouthy with the bit but after a while, she relaxed and was more comfortable with it.

I was able to bounce up and down next to her and put my foot in the stirrup. Eventually, after she figured out how to balance herself with my weight in the stirrup, I leaned over the saddle. I think she would have been fine with me swinging my leg over, but since the ground was pretty uneven we decided to call it a day.

I was really impressed with Wy today! She was so good with everything we asked of her and she didn't do anything naughty. She has her baby moments but I am so thankful that she doesn't seem to have any major problem behaviors. Given more time and training, I think she is going to be a very steady, all-around horse and possibly a very big girl too!

She sees Dr. Hannah on Monday and once we get her opinion on Wy's age, we'll come up with a more definitive training plan.

Excuse the dirty mane, she loves to roll and really needs a bath :roll:

Does she have a winter coat? :shock: When you look at my horses in there recent pics they look ten times fatter because of there big coat.Do not worry about her mane being so dirty.You can sure tell on my white horse, but with my bay-all the dirt just hides until her next bath time!I am glad she is going well under saddle.She already looks ten times better than when you got her.Keep up the good work :D
