Sunni also had a lesson last Tuesday and Maia worked a lot with desensitizing him. He's fearful. He is not agressive, but his fearfulness is cause for concern. I've worked with him, throwing a rope over his back, but if somebody new does it, it's back to square one. He was good with the fly spray and with picking up all 4 of his feet. While he trusts me, he doesn't trust others and especially not men. He was from a PMU ranch up in Michigan and was rescued by United Pegasus when he was a yearling, so I don't know his background. We are hoping that with continued desensitizing, he will calm down, but he wouldn't be a good horse for me to ride with my back problems...I still love him anyway and enjoy working with him as best I can, but he does need somebody else to work him, and Maia is very patient and relaxed with him.
