Kaya M rode Scotty in his first Joel Conner Clinic this past November, and has the following to say about their rides together:

Scotty really proved that he’s a confident and capable riding horse this weekend! I’d only ridden him a couple times out in the big arena, so I wasn’t sure how he’d handle the big open space, but he was calm and with me even through the wind and downpour. We worked a lot on helping bring his weight off his front end and trying to get him to use his hind to support and balance. Scotty has an unfortunate inclination to trip in the canter, so we’re hoping this preparation and balancing will help him be more steady loping. Scotty is really a special boy and was a pleasure to work with in this clinic! I’m excited to keep working with him and to find his new family!”
