Madeline is Working Again

Madeline hadn't been worked for three years when she was bought for my Mother and then we didn't bring her back into work for another year. We did lots of ground work with her, leading, lungeing, voice command, and building up her trust. We also had to get her used to having tack on again and we leaned on her before re-backing her.

Luckily Madeline really enjoys the fuss that is made of her during work and she is coming along nicely, we have just started with trotting poles.

I do not really know much about horses but I will enjoy reading your post and perhaps learn something along the way.

Madeline is a very lucky horse to belong to a loving family like yours.
