Horse Description: Lola was gently started under saddle by Sarah Welty of Rider Revelations in Keymar, MD. Great ground manners and lovely temperament.
Lunges well with side reins and has done some long-lining. She loves going over trot poles and small jumps while on the lunge line.
She has been introduced to the tarp, flag, pool noodles and bridges. Lola is currently going under saddle walk/trot/canter. She has gone cross country schooling at Loch Moy Farms and tackled some of the baby beginner novice jumps with enthusiasm. Her favorite part was trotting through the water! She has been out on the trails several times and she seems quite at home in the woods especially if she gets the chance to stop and play in the water along the way.
She has a gorgeous trot and an unflappable nature that will help her become a great pleasure, trail or even a lower level dressage horse or hunter.
Lola is still a bit leery of the veterinarian and vaccinations so these issues still need to be worked with everyday to help her overcome her fear. She has improved with the farrier wonderfully but does seem to prefer the female farrier over the male farrier!
