Daffinah's Slipped Saddle...



create your own slideshow

I took this set of pictures at the end of Daffinah's 1st Cinched Saddle session. She handled the fact that the saddle had slipped to the underside of her belly! And even though the time lapsed was maybe a couple of minutes...both Daffinah and Tony had worked up quite a sweat!!

To always end a a good note...Tony worked her a little after tightening the cinch. She is doing so good!!!

Photographer's Observation: Daffinah is in training 24/7 even if she knows it or not. Little lessons are being implemented all the time...such as placing her hay in a galvanized bucket that makes loud noises...a rope is tossed at her...water is sprayed around her to settle the dust...the pen is cleaned with her still in the pen...her ears are played with...and so on!!! (Just like when the guys were little...I remember leaving the television on while they took their naps and made noises while they slept so that I didn't have to pussy foot around during nap time!!!) This could have backfired on me I know, but when they need to rest they don't need complete silence and will get up at a moments notice.

It's amazing all the little things that you can do and like you say they don't even realize they are being trained! I love all the pictures that you have posted!

I hate it when the saddle slips, even more so when it's a baby to training horse. Looks like she handled it really well.

Looks like Daffinah and Quiet Storm are at a similar place for the moment, although I suspect your boys will be moving along a bit faster than I will =)
