So here is our update for July! I made a video showing Moonshine’s progress from never saddled pasture ornament to a pretty solid riding horse who is beginning to explore obstacles and getting into his bridle education.
There are many lessons learned along the way, with the most significant is that making a good horse takes time! Horse learn at their own speed. And Moonshine, given his past and the fact that he is only 3, is moving along very well. This is a lot for a young horse to do in a short amount of time, but he has been up to the task. My focus is to keep him physically and emotionally healthy, and to put in a foundation that will serve him for his life, not just this competition!
In looking back, we have come a long way!
