Things I have learned to date.. Bruno (Caleb) is a whole lotta horse LOL
He is a good boy but he has speed and power in a way that is different then my draft horse’s do.. he add’s a element of speed that is quite different from them..
I have learned that he can take his bridle off if he has a tree or post to help him do so..
I have learned that he can open a loop gate latch and let himself though a gate (this was in fact taught to him by the old owner who liked not having to get off the horse to open a gate to ride out..
I have learned that he takes a apple very nicely, and has good manners there..
I have learned that he is excellent in regards to riding cues, be it verbal, leg pressure or bit pressure
I have learned he has a very soft mouth and does best with a light touch when possible.
I have learned that he understands stand and is able to relax when asked while under saddle.
I have learned that he does not care if you come to the fence line, only cares if you come in pasture with a lead rope, otherwise, he just does his own thing..
I have learned that he does not trust me to lead yet, this makes sense, he needs to learn me as I learn him.
I have learned that he will always seek out hubby over me, makes sense, he was a man’s horse for the last five plus years.. it will be a slow transfer..
I am learning.. and so is he..
