Training Jackson – December 2014

Jackie-Jackson-Training-2014Terry Palmer asked me to work with her Tennessee Walking Horse gelding, Jackson.  Jackson would not stand still to be mounted or just to hang around, he was constantly looking left and right rather than where he was going, pulled hard enough that you needed a Vicodin at the end of the day and was so on his forehand that he tripped and fell with Terry.  Instead of gaiting, he paced. It took a few Vicodin, but I taught Jackson to cherish being in neutral and straight with me. Within a couple of weeks we got him more balanced and by the end of the month he was gaiting smoothly and stopping to a sigh.  Really nice horse!
