Update May 2017 Solomon has made leaps and bounds in the 120 days of training he has had. He now will quietly stand to be groomed, bathed, tacked, mounted and dismounted. He will pick up all 4 feet and stand very well for the farrier both for trimming and shoes. He lunges very well both in a round pen or on a lunge line and responds to voice commands and body language. Under saddle Solomon can walk, trot, lope and gallop. He picks up his correct leads, is soft on the bit and has a nice head carriage. He steers off your leg and seat cues. Solomon will side pass both directions, back, turn on his haunches and sliding stop. He also has a simple lead change both directions and close to having his flying changes. Solomon has been ridden on many trails, through water, over logs, over tarps, etc., and handles it all in stride. Solomon will excel in a continued training program with consistency. I think he can go far in the performance world in many different directions. Cutting, Reining, Cow horse, ranch pleasure, trail, etc., Options are endless with this little guy!
Update May 23, 2017 Solomon and Stephanie are this year's 5th Place winners of the Adult division of our 6th Annual Blaze's Ride to the Rescue Trainer's Challenge.
