Current assessment and status: PYE is doing great! Her health is great, she is sound, and her foster barn is working hard on helping her gain weight.
Pye is very sensitive, which is great! She has great manners (leading, ground tying, lunging and better everyday about standing to be mounted). It takes a little while, under saddle, for her to realize we don’t want her to race around, and she can just settle down, and have a quiet ride. She has been working on collection, as well as, long and low, stretching out. She can be energetic but definitely not malicious. She needs a quiet, soft-handed, experienced rider that can work with her on the slow. Once she settles, she is amazing!! She has been ridden in both English and Western tack. No beginners please!
