Pearl had her first ride at the Joel Connor clinic a couple of weeks ago! She isn’t bothered by having a person on her back and took to it easily. Here’s what Kaya had to say about her:

Pearl has come a long way since being at SAFE, but still has a long way to go before she’s a gentle riding horse. She has a hard time supporting her weight with her hind end. She needs to be able to do this so she can be balanced and confidently move her front end. Helping Pearl find balance will make her less nervous because she will be able to move away easily from things that trouble her.

Right now, Pearl is the boss mare in a herd of 5 youngsters, all under 4 years old. She keeps everyone in line and teaches manners. They all adore her.
