Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, April 2014. The roses are blooming!

Gigondas gets a lesson






















My cousin, Valerie, came over this week to give Gigondas a lesson. Gigo was pulling back and immediately yanking the lead rope out of our hands and running off in the arena and we needed to put a stop to that as it was unsafe for both us and for her. So Valerie got out the Dually halter and proceeded to give Gigo a lesson. Guess what? Now she's fine and doesn't do it any longer! Here are some pics from that day.

You were so wise to end that behavior. A good friend has a horse who does the exact same thing, it is really dangerous. I had wondered if the dually halter would help Quincy.
