Well after Taran's misery this weekend, I was dreading today. I had my R.I come up to give me a lesson on Jakes. Last time Jakes was very un-cooperative and moody.
This time he was like a dream - I knew he wanted to work as he took the bit. He was responsive, happy and working really well. We were both so pleased.
Shame I thought, he doesn't load, we won't ever get to show him off
So I thought after R.I had gone home, I would try loading him once... 3 years I have never got him to load - he just refused to move...
Little brave coblet had one rear and walked straight in!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't believe it!!!! This Coblet wouldn't load for ANYONE!!!!!!! And walks straight in with the dually this afternoon. Walked out and in and out 10 times. I tied him in the box and shut the ramps. He never once kicked or paniced. Infact he started 'begging' (lifting up his near fore) for a treat which he prompty got with lots of kisses!
So Jakes and Beks will go to the ball after all....
Walk and trot dressage test here we come!!!!!*
*in rideable distance incase he refuses to load
