The Education Of Little Hawk

Have not been on a horse in over a week. I have been spending my mornings training a very tall 12 year old Corolla gelding, Little Hawk, that we recently acquired, along with his half sister, Black Elk. After a five days of training he took on his first rider, Abigail without incident. As the picture shows, all of our first mountings and riding on the horses that we train start off wit the horse being lead from the ground. After the horse is comfortable with that he takes his first independent ride in the round pen. Then it is just a matter of time before he is in the woods.

I will likely ride him in the woods before Memorial Day. He lacks his sister's beauty but he has the perfect Corolla mind---- calm, trusting and sensible.
