14.2 Hands


October 28, 2020:

Madalynn has shown improvement with catching and being more open to having a connection with people. However under saddle she has had little change over the last month. She still requires an intermediate to advanced rider.

October 7, 2020:

Madalynn has made a lot of progress, however she still shows some anxiety in different situations. She can be wary of new people and will need some adjustment time with anyone who adopts her. She has been ridden a lot in the arena and out on trails. She still will require an intermediate to advanced rider to help her along in her training.

June 11, 2020:

Madalynn has transformed into a more confident and willing horse.  Every day she handles scary items better all while becoming softer in her carriage.  She has found how to slow her lope and travel more relaxed.  Madalynn can still be shy at first with new people but is really sweet once she gets to know you.  At this time she will require an intermediate rider.

Madalynn continues to progress, however we are going to change up her training regiment.  She will be transitioned to trail rides only, to focus on getting some more miles with her under saddle.  She can start a trail ride a little tight and unsure, but after some time passes she begins to settle in more.  At this time she will require an experienced rider.

Updated October 4:

Madalynn has made so much progress over the last few weeks.  She has become more relaxed in all of her gaits and has learned to slow her feet.  She has been on many trail rides and has handled them like an experienced horse.  She is comfortable and smooth to ride whether we are loping in the arena or she’s powering up a hill out on the trail.  At this time Madalynn still would require an intermediate rider.

Update August 20:

Madalynn is really becoming a great riding horse. She is more confident under saddle and on the ground. She travels a little high headed but is slow and relaxed in all of her gaits. She is a great trail horse who loves to explore. I could potentially see her excel with having a job as well. Madalynn will require an intermediate rider.

Update March 15th:

Madalynn has continued to progress in her training here.  She still can have moments of uncertainty and needs a confident rider to help her through those times.  She has really improved with slowing her speed and relaxing in her gaits as well as softening in her collection.  At this time she still would require an intermediate to advanced rider.

Update December 23rd:

Madalynn is a big sturdy girl with a sensitive personality.  She can get unsure of some things and really look to her rider for guidance and reassurance.  She has improved in her training so much in a short time frame and is really making great progress.  At this time, Madalynn still would require an advanced rider.

Updated September 20, 2018:

Over the last few months Madalynn has been steadily progressing in training. She has proven to be a pretty nervous horse and can become defensive when she receives too much pressure. The more time and training Madalynn receives under saddle, the more confident and trusting she is becoming. She will require an advanced intermediate rider at this time.

We recently started Madalynn in our training program. So far she has taken very well to being ridden under saddle. We only have a hand full of rides on her so far (June 18th) so she does not know very much yet and is still very nervous. With time and continued training she should keep progressing nicely. Madalynn will require an advanced rider at this time.
