Copperpony's Bridling

COPPERPONY was enjoying the nice day

he is always happy to see us!!!

Today was day three on my commitment

with bridling

I went out two different times and worked with Doc

Dusty was such a GOOD BOY!

He took the bit 5 times without it being a challenge

I think he realizes he has no choice!!!

Dr. Tony doesn't give in


Dusty Devoe is on a mission!

Tomorrow I know will be a good day!!!

Did some more free lunging today

I really feel like

my COPPERPONY is connecting with me!

I am lovin' it!!!

Good boy Copperpony!!! Gilly is a stinker when it comes to bridling, he does finally open mouth but it's grudgingly, brat! I really need to work with him on this problem. He likes his bit just wants to be a bugger about it.

Sounds like that was just what he needed. I'm glad it is working well for you both.

Congrats on keeping your word so far. Sometimes just getting out there is the hardest part. All your hard work will be so worth it when you can finally bridle him easily and get your hinny back in the saddle!

Keep up the good work! I'm lucky now I no one here with those issues, thankfully, but I had my share in the past!

Hang in there Dusty, you'll get your Mama eating out of the palm of your hand again!

Can't wait to see the free longing next time I am visiting. Cute video, I wish my horse would walk up to me that quickly, LOL! He is getting better, actually.

Consistency is the name of the game! Keep up the good work. Took Steve Holt! a good long time to take his bit nicely.
