The humble surroundings were well kept up with creative use of surplus materials. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128549 59128549 This gelding was the most cooperative. He was curious and compliant. He bucked me off once because I used a back cinch and bitless bridle that triggered his claustrophobia. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128550 59128550 https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128551 59128551 https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128552 59128552 https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341661 59341661 This gelding bucked me off the first ride. We changed from a bitless bridle back to a rope halter and removed the back cinch with positive results. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128559 59128559 This mare would let you sit on her but would buck when asked to walk. After riding her with a rope halter she allowed me to ride her with a snaffle. She was very light even though she still was not very confident. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128553 59128553 She let me ride her without bucking. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128554 59128554 This gelding was so mentally damaged that even though he was not afraid he would not cooperate with any request. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128555 59128555 Look at the lack of life in his eye. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341666 59341666 These mustangs all had freeze brands. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128556 59128556 Rescued wild boar baby with injured leg is nutured back to health. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128557 59128557 Diane and Danny with some of their pets. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128558 59128558 Diane and I with Sedona Sedona was so scared that clicker training was being used prior to my arrival. I continued to stimulate the food drive with good results. After two sessions Sedona accepted the saddle and my foot in the stirrup. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128547 59128547 It took a while for her to accept the bareback pad and cinch. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128560 59128560 Getting her to accept me six feet above her. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128561 59128561 Burlap bags to desensitize her very sensitive sides. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128562 59128562 It took a lot of persuading to get her to accept the saddle https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128563 59128563 Giving to the feel and disengaging her hid quarters https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59381084 59381084 https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128564 59128564 Long lining (driving) https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128565 59128565 This is as far as she let me go. I ran out of time with this mare but she came a long way to trust me. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59128566 59128566 After 2 1/2 days I had to say goodbey without reaching my objective to ride her. She needs more time to overcome her fears. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59381085 59381085 This paint gelding was brought by its owner for a tune up. He was fun to play with. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341662 59341662 Very confident paint mustang. Somebody is doing a good yob with him. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341663 59341663 He didn't have much forward impulsion so we performed the straight line point to point drill He was very calm during saddleing. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341664 59341664 Trying a snaffle for his first time. He accepted the snaffle without a fuss. https://www.horsetamerministry.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=59341665 59341665
