Wow! I am so proud of Valero and Cord!I actually rode them! Valero could care less when I sat on him! He responded to my leg cues and bit pressure!! What I did to get him ready for me to actually ride him was I watched Kitty Lauman's Success Under Saddle. I also put fake legs on him(boat bumpers) to get him used to things hitting him in the sides. I was very impressed with how well he handled everything!

I also rode Cord today! He didn't respond to leg pressure(Which i was happy with because the last time I rode him once I put my feet on him he had a bucking fit) This was the one hole we had the last time we tried to train Cord to saddle. We didn't get him used to leg pressure. My mom just led me around while i was on him make sure he had no fits. We didn't get any pictures of this unfortunately.

That red and blue thing attached to his cinch is rubber reins. It gets him to give to the bit. You can learn more in Kitty Lauman's video.

Today we only had 3 hours to work with our horses due to how busy we were. Valero was responding better to leg cues and bit pressure.

Petting Lero for a job well done!
We started off with my mom leading me around on Cord, then I told my mom," Take the halter off." She looked at me like i was CRAZY! haha! "The bird has to leave the nest sometime,mom. Cord needs to figure this out on his own and he can't do that if he is following you the whole time." is what I told her to get her to take off the lead. Cord was very confused at first as to why my mom was not leading him anymore and when I put leg pressure on him... nothing. So to get him to move I turned his head away from my mom . Once Cord got going he caught onto the idea of walking around.
