Mary is a 4 year old Morgan mare who joins us for training through a new partnership with Dorset Equine Rescue in Vermont. She is a solid, well built girl and an easy keeper with great feet. Mary was unhandled upon arrival at Dorset last year, and with their training has come a long way: learning the basics and even beginning work under saddle. We will be taking it from the beginning with Mary, as she can be anxious about being handled in certain situations but she has already won us over with her sweet, friendly demeanor.
After several months of slow, steady work, Mary is now being ridden at the walk and trot in the arena. She can still show some anxiety at times, but is improving each week. Mary is also showing increased softness and relaxation in her body during work on the lunge and in hand.
