Choco


This is Choco he is 5-6 years old started as a two year old then never rode or finished. I made the mistake of turning him and Red out into my outdoor arena when they first came. Big Mistake it took four people over an hour to catch them. After some round pen work that is much improved. He had real head issues and was hard to bridle. Then once bridled gaped at the mouth and chomped and chewed so he spent a couple nights eating, drinking and sleeping with it on. Big improvement as far as that went. At first I was waiting at least 10 minutes for the slightest give, but you can see he is giving his head softly now. His trot is getting better, but he is still not broke at the poll. His main goals for this week are to get even softer in his gives, learn to break at the poll and get more consistant at the trot.
