Here are some photos of Max (Baron's son) playing with me at liberty. He is a very cool horse!!! I've done all his training myself with the help of some Parelli clinics. He is incredibly smart, confident, curious, and so willing. He loves to jump, we are getting into some dressage, and I can trail ride him anywhere in a halter. He has done incredibly well considering I usually only work with him twice a week. He is such a wonderful horse, my Friesian Georgian Grande!

Subject: Hello from Texas!!!
Max aka Red is doing wonderfully!! I am training him myself and going to
Parelli Natural Horsemanship clinics. I ride him in a bitless
bridle and often bareback. Max's gaits are beautiful. We have even
gotten an incredible extended trot from him at the last clinic (kind
of by accident on my part) and the Parelli instructor kept saying
"oh my gosh that is beautiful". His canter is so comfortable! He
is so smart and so receptive to training. If I had more time to
play (the Parelli word) with him, he could be so much farther
along. But I am having a blast and and am loving every minute even
if I'm moving slowly. I'll be moving Max from the place he's at to a
place within walking (riding) distance from the trainer. She's got
a covered arena which will really help when it is 110 outside.
Having an arena to use regularly will increase my riding time.
Where I'm at now is really rough. Everyone loves him. He's just full
of personality, curiosity, intelligence, and athleticism. Such a
2007 Red is doing
great! He gets along with all the horses and all the people. I
lead him around all over the ranch so he can get used to all the
sights and sounds. I let him loose in a huge pasture today to run
around and he never went out of sight. He really likes to know where
I am. I've been working him loose in the round pen and doing sort
of the Monty Roberts join up thing. I think we were "joined up"
from the beginning though. He'll follow me anywhere! I ordered a
surcingle to begin long lining him since I don't have a saddle yet. I
want to do lots of ground work before getting on him. I'm just
amazed at how cooperative he is!
I'm going to email you some pictures of him. These were taken about
an hour after he arrived. He was so calm! He followed my
son, Coleman, readily and wanted to be close to everyone.(My husband,
the owner of the place, and my mother in law were there also.)
Everyone that sees him is amazed at his personality, gentleness,
and gorgeous good looks!
