Lexis is filling out and looking gorgeous! This has been a big year for her. We started her under saddle , and then took her to Anna Stein for a month of exposing her to new things and learning to go forward. She was awesome and came home ready to see the world. I had a bucket list of going to Sunset Horse Park, going to a beach, a forest and up a mountain. We managed to do it all , mostly in August and September. Lexi also participated in Day Camps and was a star in the Natural Horsemanship classes. She is so smart !
I have done all of her training in a rope halter to this point.
I'm looking forward to next year as she approaches 5 yrs.
Lexi is growing and developing nicely. She has a very long , elastic stride and is showing us she will have quite an impressive jump. Lexi loves attention, and is always very engaged in her training sessions. I have grown to know her as a "left brain extrovert/introvert". She has double whorls on her forhead which may indicate two sides to her personality. Her tendancy is to be a little mouthy, very careful and studious in new situatuions, and has the "what's in it for me" MO. She is accepting me on her back, and after being reprimanded for trying to bite my feet, she is a very willing student. My goal as of now is to just let her get used to me on her bareback, and stop and steer in a halter and rope. So far so good!
Lexi is growing slowly but surely. She has filled out in the past year in her body quite a bit. We are still quite pleased with her beautiful gaits, incredible athleticism and character. Left brain extrovert she is!
