Standardbred gelding that is taking to life back here at the farm. He has adjusted well to the herd and is working on gaining some weight and muscle tone. He has done some short trails, long lining, and had the cart hooked up for short periods.
Having had Parelli Natural Horsemanship when he was three and beginning his saddle training have really made the foundations solid. His new owner is taking the appropriate steps to bring him mentally back to being able to trust his handler both on the ground and under saddle. The work is paying off big time! Louie was able to ride through town and take a dip in the lake this weekend!
Louie is continuing to learn how to grow in his education. When challenged with a scary situation rather than panic he is learning to look at it and investigate. His owner Amanda is leading him to a wonderful place where he is excelling at all points.
Louie and Amanda have been swimming this summer, long trail rides, and have begun to long line in hopes of pulling the cart or sleigh this year! 9/14
