The Training Session was AMAZING

I am sorry to keep anyone following my journey with Rugby waiting to hear how the training session with T.S. went on Saturday. It was a crazy-busy weekend! As soon as the training session was done, I had to teach a lesson and then run home, shower, pack and head off with the family to our weekend vacation plans! There was no computer access where we were staying so I couldn't update the blog. We returned home yesterday afternoon and I was planting flowers in our front yard since rain is in the forecast and the flowers have been waiting for too long to go from flat to garden!

All I can say is it was the most amazing thing watching T.S. work with Rugby. In two hours my horse went from uneducated slacker to willing student. I will post more details later as I am at work but I was just blown away by the change in my horse.

I got my horse at 3 years old. He just turned 6. There are always times when you wonder if things will work out. My gut said yes and now my horse and I have a real partnership growing. At times I thought he was progressing great, and suddenly we would go backwards. Then I stayed off of him for a while and did other things to build trust and understanding. Soon he was willing to progress again. If you feel that Rugby will come thru, with your experience and knowledge, he probably will. Take the times it takes. This is a whole new gig to him and he is young. Take your time and be safe, your patience and consistancy will pay off later on.
