I had such an amazing experience yesterday – Mandy Inabinett and Ashley Thompson from Equine Om came to the ranch to work with Kobi and me. We had no idea what to expect from Kobi. After all, he’s a formerly wild horse who has his own agenda, not necessarily what I choose for him to do that day!
He was awesome! He didn’t care about most things except when I would scoot back too close on his hindquarters, then he wasn’t happy. He didn’t act out, but had his own subtle, Kobi way, to let us know he wasn’t happy. Here are some pictures of what we did (Mandy is guiding me through the postures and Ashley is holding Kobi’s lead and keeping him content:
For fun, when we were done with Kobi we got Midnight (or Moonshine…we’re kicking around a new name)out just to see what he would do. He was amazing – he didn’t care one bit where I was or what I did…here are some pics of what we did together.
Now, what I can do isn’t that amazing (yet) – but when I offered Mandy a chance to hop up on Midnight/Moonshine to try a few postures, she took me up on it…here’s what I aspire to do!
If anyone is interested in giving it a try (which I highly recommend) – click here for their schedule!
