I don't remember how many hours. Worked on it off and on for a few days. Didn't have t do to much other than scratch my head and try to figure out how they did them in 1830 to 1850.

I'll get the filly started when she's two and then raise colts out of her if she's as good as she looks. Sure is a classy little devil, in my opinion. My son did the training on her mom and when they folks couldn't ride her as she was just too quick, we bought herfrom tyhem. At 20 days of training, she was so sweet I called her Peaches. :lol: Maybe I'll name the baby Classy. The mare has Peppy San on her papers and the colt will have it from both sides.

Looks like a dressage horse. Although it might be anathema to you, it's worth trying dressage. I can get you the name of a good instructor. My mom did it from her 40s into her 70s. She raised and trained her horse, as well as got my sister to buy a part Hanoverian. Her horse, Lambie Pie, was beautiful and gentle.

There is a lot to be learned from dressage. I am open to anything that helps to communicate with a horse. I've been to clinics and have a couple of neighbors who have gotten real good with horses. It's amazing what you can learn when you keep an open mind and don't dismiss things, out of hand, withut checking them out. :lol:

Most of the good hands all do the basic same things, to help a horse, what ever their background. :wink:
