I am so proud, Woody is a great horse to work with. Wunderbar !!

I can't tell you how excited I am!!
Today we had our first real round pen work with Woody. I did not wanted to start before he was somewhat comfortable with me because Linda told me he could take a try jumping the fence. My round pen already has dome damage so I did not wanted to take that chance with a big horse like Woody.

All I can say is wauww what a great sensitive good willing horse he is. He is so scared but he tries so hard. It took a long long time but finally we joined up and he followed me and I could get into his private circle and pet him. He not once tried to hurt me, try to be mean or anything like that.
In the end he was actually playful and dared me and we had a lot of fun, it was like dances with horses....He will be such a great horse...well he already is but a great partner!


  1. How exciting! Peter will be very lucky to have such a horse! Curlies can be such amazing partners, and so sensitive that you think they read you mind. I am SO excited for Woody to read your news, Marion. He's taken a big step toward his new home!

  2. What an exciting day for both you and Woody! Congratulations Marion, you have a fine looking partner there as well!

  3. That must have been quite the feeling! Good job!
