Life of Riley has started a non blog hop - blog hop to feature your horses transformation. Since Penny has not had a huge transformation - she was already 7 and broke when I got her, and Parker is only 6 months under saddle, I thought I would show Williams transformation which has been drastic in my eyes!
The day I brought him home, October 2011:
Here he is in November of 2011 - just under 3 years ago. First time under saddle.
Those who have followed the blog for awhile know the struggles we have overcome. William will always be William, but he sure is a special horse. It may have taken us three years to get here but now he is a horse that goes out and wins. I am all about tailoring a program to suit the horse and if that means taking it slow - then we take it slow. :)
Here he is earlier this summer - before his run in with the stall window. FWIW he is 99.9% sound and ready to get back to work. He will have three more weeks off to ensure everything is OK and then we will start legging him up again!
