Would you like to see how well Libby gaits? Here's the video!

Watch one horse teach another one

Ideally, Libby's head would be even with Blue's shoulder when I'm leading her.  We haven't achieved that yet.  But at least she's quit laying her ears back and threatening to bite, and she has almost stopped balking.

And she has a smooth, head-nodding gait, just like Blue.  She will be a comfortable ride with no bouncing.

In the final segment of this, watch how poor Libby almost seems to be saying, "Hey lady, you are too heavy!"  Also, notice the two interested horses in the background (not my horses, they are boarded here), who seem to be very fascinated with all these goings-on.

Be sure and tell Cliff how it means to us to be able to see these video's.  And thank him.  This is a whole new experience for me....getting to see the inside of horse training.

Hi Donna,
    I'd love to see how Libby gaits, my computer won't let me.  She is so sweet, she'll love her red saddle.  I'd love to comment on your blog, I can certainly relate to the mice, I can't figure out how to do it.  The pictures were great, I loved all of them.  Thank you for sharing your life    Vicki

Awww, I really enjoyed watching that. She is a beauty doing those gaits. Of course Blue is also. I do believe she would will let you ride her when she gets a bit older. Cliff did a good job taking the video. Thanks for you prayers and comments. Helen
