Sundance kid as about 2-3 years old and coming along nicely. He is gaining weight and is a pleasure to be around. SDK’s adoption is pending.
Here is a video of his first ride:
SDK is eager to please and has a nice floating trot. He has been worked on the lunge line and in the round pen using Clinton Anderson methods. He responds very well to this method of training. He does great with the farrier and he does great when given shots. He has all his shots including west nile. SDK leads, and is beginning to trust. He has never reared or tried to kick. SDK has been in an o ring snaffle and he settles into it very well. He flexes his head left and right, and will back up on command. He has had saddle blanket on him and a bareback pad without a problem. Sometimes he can be difficult to catch. He needs someone who wants to make a saddle horse out of him. He gets along with others and since he has be gelded he is no problem with the mares in heat. He is gaining weight nicely and is down to two feedings a day. SDK needs a soft hand and an experienced horse handler to continue his training.
The following are new photos with his progress.
