Since I lost a whole year of working with my horses, due to my back injury, I'm WAY behind in their training. Sunni needs the most work. As a quarter horse, he's pretty laid back, but he is also spooky. So, I'm trying to work with him as much as I can now, before school starts. He had a lesson with my cousin yesterday morning and he's made a lot of progress this past week. I've worked him in the round pen and he can now "stay" while she or I walk around behind him or beside him. YEAH~progress! He's still a little "iffy" when we walk toward his rear and he can't see us, so I'll work on that with him today. But, he's a big, loveable LUG and I want his confidence to improve. I feel sad that I lost a year's training with my horses, but there just wasn't anything I could do with them while dragging my leg behind me! Now that time has mostly healed my back (I still have tingling and numbness in my left leg) and permanent nerve damage and I haven't been on a horse again, at least I can do their ground training. I took these pics yesterday when my cousin, Valerie, was working with Sunni in the round pen. GOOD BOY!
