Vinny struggled with saddle training and we feel it is not in his best interest to continue saddle training at this time. He will continue to work with our groundwork trainer to learn how to relax and hopefully get to a point where he can work with the volunteers.
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. Here is a snapshot of the work Vinny did with our Volunteer Jill S. during the challenge.
