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 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Gigo's lesson

It was only Gigo's second lesson with Maia, my trainer, so she basically wanted to see what Gigo could and could not do. Walking in the round pen is hard for her! She wants to run everywhere, but Maia got her to relax and walk. She also stopped her nicely at the gate..."WAIT"...hmmm....that's a word I'm going to have to use more often! Gigo tied well, but did pull back when Maia touched her with the fly spray. I'm going to need to add more apple cider vinegar to my mixture as I didn't add enough the first time! So, here are some pics from Gigo's lesson last week. On Tuesday, she'll work Quad again and the two mustangs.

I think a lot of horses would pull back with the fly spray the first time. Cowboy even did it last month and has since developed a strange fear of it. For fifteen years you could spray him all over and now he has decided to be scared? Weird.
