Current assessment and status: Green Broke- needs experienced trainer
April was uncomfortable in the grooming stall and would charge out of the stall. This month (3/21), she really had a breakthrough and has been ground tying and becoming much more comfortable in the grooming stall and grooming area. She also had some reservations about being tacked up – nothing horrible, but definitely has been nervous when the saddle and bridle was presented. She is now much more comfortable tacked up and has been ridden multiple times under saddle, walk/trot. She will stop if she doesn’t understand what she is being asked but is now much more willing to move forward after that. When she is worked from the ground on the circle, she is either not forward and wants to stop and turn in, or trots very fast (not asked). Katie has been making great strides in making April more comfortable on the circle and getting her to walk.
April is at our training barn at Abenaki Farm in NH. Please fill out an application before making an appointment to see her.
