UPDATE MAY 21ST:
We took all six of the Mustangs on an extreme back country pack trip this past week. We ride deep into the outlaw country known as "Robber Roost". This country is made up of slick rock canyons and hidden trails with very little water sources. The outlaws loved this area due to the mild winters and the ability to hide out from searching posses. The Mustangs did their jobs very well on slick rock trails.
Jesse has made some huge improvements in the last week. He was overly concerned with people or objects moving around behind him. After this pack trip he is very confident at the front of the string!
update april 24th:
Jesse's curiosity is fun to watch, especially out in open country. Just set the reins down and watch him explore his environment. He loves to touch the trees and the bushes with his nose taking in all the smells of the trail.
update march 13th:
Jesse started as the most aggressive out of the five Wyoming Mustangs here at The Ranch for training. His answers were to seek fight. Overtime we have been able to teach him to down-regulate and engage. He is now excepting the halter and leads and is working well with his trainer. He is ready for the saddle and first ride.
