Today was lesson day at the farm today. We had a potential adopter come out to watch Zanadu and Sara in her lesson today. I missed the lesson but Sara reported Zanadu did great today, no bucking or kicking out in the canter at all today and the trainer set up trot poles to help with her canter departs and it really helped a lot. Annie was also reportedly very good for her lesson — a change in saddle pads seemed to make her a bit happier and free up her shoulder a bit — we think the riser pad we were using on her may have been causing the saddle to fit too tightly in the shoulders.
Andrea said it was the best she’d see Annie move; very animated and forward! The change in he movement was noticeable immediately and I think this was the best ride I’ve had on her in a long time 🙂
Is Zanadu still available for adoption? She looks so full of life and personality, I would love to come out and meet her?
