Gretel is a cute and lively pony who arrived at THS in March. She did not have any evidence of prior handling. She is now halter-broke and is progressing through our groundwork training program via the Forever Foundation’s 60 Day Challenge. She is smart and sensitive, picking up new skills quickly.
During the 60 Day Groundwork Challenge, horses and their handlers work on a different skill each week. Skills include: Catching, yielding HQ/FQ, backing, leading, sending over/through/under obstacles, learning flag work, tying preparations, trailer loading and farrier prep.
