Horse Description: Fondly known as ‘Indy’! She has taken her time to showcase her potential, slowly building her trust in our trainer and learning how to develop into a good citizen. Indy loves showing off her smooth, lovely gaits on the lunge line while trotting over trot poles and jumping over small jumps. She has shown off her intelligence by being able to do most of the groundwork off-line and enjoys following the trainer around at a trot.
She is learning how to continue to develop the correct muscles for under saddle work and has been working hard to please. Indy is currently going walk/trot/canter and has started riding in the open field and seems to rather enjoy that. She is learning how to tie and to accept that vaccinations only sting for a second! She ground ties well, enjoys a warm bath and comes when called (most of the time). Being the smart (and sometimes opinionated) gal that she is, she really needs a special human to continue her training and give her a structured home but also continue to work on the ground with her as she really shines when playing at liberty.
Indy has shown her versatility under saddle by going either western or English. She is also learning how to ride with just a neck rope! She has a great whoa and a lovely back up along with some beautiful turn on the forehand and haunches. She is trying to show that she wants to be a dressage horse by working on stretching into contact and even trying out a little bit of shoulder-fore and haunches-in.
Nothing really seems bother Indy and she rather likes playing with the tarp and the yoga ball.
