Recently Kaya has taken over riding Anderson at SAFE. She is doing a great job with him and it is really great to see him take to a new rider. He is keeping up the training and seems as the saying goes “the student has become the teacher.” He has been a good boy for Kaya and no issues have come up with the transfer to a new person. This is helpful for his transition to an adopter and we are hopeful his person is out there and ready to take him on! Here is what Kaya had to say about her recent experience riding Anderson in the Joel Conner clinic at SAFE:
“I was lucky enough to get to ride Anderson in the first two days of the Joel Conner clinic. What a cool horse! Anderson really knows his stuff and I was really able to focus on myself during the riding sessions, which I really appreciate! It was great to feel all the motions that we normally focus on and really get specific and kind of take things to the next step that I haven’t been able to work on with other horses.
“Anderson is so level headed about being around other horses, he didn’t seem the least bit bothered by the traffic in the arena. I am currently overcoming a bit of riding anxiety caused by a couple of recent falls and the fact that Anderson is so solid was incredibly helpful to me. He really helped me gain a lot of confidence! We went flying around the figure eight exercise on Saturday (he’s a fast little horse!) and I felt in total control the whole time. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to learn on Anderson!”
