    Talking A super green horse story...

    And a little brag!

    Crossing over from Eventing land here! I've been training one of my barn owners really green mares. She is 12 years old and has done nothing. She training under saddle back when she was 4 and 5, then her owner had a MASSIVE stroke. Horses were put on the back burner and forgotten. Last summer, my barn owner bought her!

    Today we brought her to her very first lesson, her very first ride off the farm, her very first time in an indoor, her very first time cantering a jump, so lots of firsts! She just learned to canter yesterday, so it's definitely a work in progress SOOO proud of her! I've ridden her about 10 times total.

    PLEASE pardon my EQ. I've been eventing for too long

    Critiques are great, but please remember the mare is SUPER green... She's incredibly smart!

    Thanks for putting up with another of many shameless brags!

    Looks like she is going to be pretty cute with some training! Being 12 though may be a road block as far as lead changes, etc go but she looks kind. good luck with her

    With lots of work,and some days of aggravations I am sure you guys will be great. My project that will be for sale soon was just now learning his leads at age 8 he's 9 now and he's doing great jumping courses and doing some simples changes. You might have some challenges but Im sure there is hope I like her,she looks like a ton of fun!!

    When I opened this thread I was expecting, "So my grey horse rolled in poop... WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

    Your lady is very pretty.

    Awww she's a cutie! She seems to be enjoying herself, and she didn't look that phased by the indoor.

    Good luck and have fun!
    I like mares. They remind me of myself: stubborn know it alls who only acknowledge you if you have food.

    Thanks!
    I like her a lot. It's been suggested that I ride her in a standing martingale? I've never used one, and don't know what that would help her with...

    This is her at the show!
