Jewels is going to the trainer.

I finally broke down and called a trainer to help me with Jewels. I have been procrastinating over it for months. I really didn’t want to pay someone for something I know I can do on my own. Mean while she is still standing around in my pasture with nothing to do. What a waste. Jewels has more potential to be something great and the fact that I know this should drive m forward and get it done. It’s take such a great deal of effort on my part to do anything but work. I’m tired of using it as a crutch, not to do the things I want to do at home. Plain and simply put, I’m flat tired when I get off work. My age has its limitations and I’m sick and tired of using that to.

Good news is. The guy I hired to do the job is phenomenal with horses. He has a soft disposition and quiet around livestock. Which in fact, Jewels needs a lot of. She’s such a nervous Nelly around other people. I feel the new surroundings and people are going to be a adjustment for her, but she’ll be better because of it. She’s come a long way with her training here. Now I just need someone to put some miles on her. I’m going to take her tomorrow and drop her off for 30 days. My goal is that he teach her to walk, trot and short lope on a loose rein. Then the next 30 we’ll work on teaching me to get the same results. I want my transitions to be as smooth as the trainers before I bring her home.

I’ll be taking her to the trainer tomorrow. We’ll talk more about my expectations then. Until next time. Happy horsing around.

    Susan..Jewel’s is so pretty. Some times we all need help with the things we already know how to do. 🙂 I did a lot of “horsing around” today….but not with horses 🙂
