Our clients beautiful little Saalperd gelding is going home next week. He has done amazing progress in the three months with us. He used to run away when someone wanted to fetch him, bite, kick, rear and buck under rider. He held so much tension from previous traumas. He gained trust, self confidence and self carriage, balance, straightness and relaxation. Instead of running with his head high and a hollow back, he now is feather light and bringing his back up for us voluntarily. All of this being said- if he meets a complete stranger that has not done any ground work with him first, he will not give permission to mount. We respect this and it is in fact a great way to know how good your relationship is.
