July 20, 2009- Day Four

This morning I was up with the sun and out at the barn earlier than usual. I brought along one of my super old tex tan reining saddles and after oiling it some so it didnt squeak too much and spook Dean, I set it aside and Lead him outside and groomed, sprayed, and ezalled him, lunged him, and then put my rope around his heart girth area to get used to the cinch. AGAIN he could care less!!!! I then put the saddle pad on him and my saddle- but did not cinch him up. THAT is for tomorrow =)

I also worked on leading... at the moment he will turn left or right with pressure but not forward. BUT I have to remain happy that he is coming along as quickly as he is!!! The great part about this journey is that I am not pushing him along faster than he wants to go- and that is the awesome part about it. I always have said that I didnt not believe in the way some trainers push their horses too far too fast for the money...

I cannot believe how quickly Dean is coming along... But honestly I feel that its more that I have an awesome horse... not that I am the awesome trainer... ha ha ha

until tomorrow!!!
