After taking a little break from fostering for us over the winter, we were thrilled when Melonie agreed to take Lucky on as her next project. So far, he’s fit right in at White Birch Farm and Melonie reports that she loves working with him If you haven’t yet, go “like” her page on Facebook. You can follow along with Lucky and all the goings on at her farm. A huge thanks to Melonie for donating her training time to keep this guy going!
About his arrival:
Getting to know his work-ethic:
“Had my first session with Lucky last night! I didn’t ride him, as it was blowing and dusk, but he lunged beautifully. What a gorgeous mover that boy is. My plan is to ride today. Totally excited!”
“Basically the ride was uneventful.…which is great! He did everything I asked, with a good attitude, and was so much fun to ride. He pretty much opened his mouth and told me to put the bit in! Then away we went. Now it’s time for Ride No. 2!”
“Three great rides on Lucky this week. Each day we’re getting to know each other better and better. What a fun horse.”
Here’s what Melonie had to say about Lucky after Sunday’s ride:
“What a nice, nice horse. He really hasn’t given me a bit of trouble. I sat down into the canter today, really hugged him but good with my legs, touched him with my spur, it was alllll good, even better for it! He has a big canter. But he’s balanced for such a big horse. Still in the getting-to-know-you phase. I left him in the cross-tie tonight while I prepped the hay, perfect gentleman. Stood there like a Rock Star. Perfect manners in the barn. ”
