My NEW Haflingers 2nd ever Parelli ride!
Ok, here is my 2nd video from this past Sunday of me riding Kaspin. Please look at past post for the video of me riding Enzo Sunday(and other post, since I have been busy taping)! I cannot figure out how to load more than one video on a post at a time and it not take 3 hours to load? Please leave me pointers if you have any? Currently, I load my videos to you tube and then share them to blogger from there. It's the only way that it goes fast for me. Anyway, Kaspin in 6 yrs old, and he is 15'2 hands and that is large for a Haflinger. The haflinger breeder never started him till he was 4yrs old. To let his bones and joints mature slowly. Plus, they taught Kaspin some bad manners. Like being super heavy, won't halt without dragging(they even used a twisted wire bit before!), bucks when cantered, hangs on the halter even for leading, etc. So basically, I am going to re-start Kaspin the Parelli way! Meaning, even though Kaspin is 6yrs old, he is as green as Enzo basically. So this video is also very slow, since I am just going through the basics with Kaspin at a walk. Kaspin doesn't even understand the mounting block(don't forget, I mount from both sides of my horses). It took me 20 minutes to get Kaspin close to the mounting block and for me to even get on Kaspin. Don't worry, I took that long part off of the video, LOL. I spent lots of time bending Kaspin's neck to continue teaching the Parelli porcupine game while riding and to hopefully end up with an emergency stop later. Just like Enzo, Kapsin likes to use his mouth also on my shoes, laces, pants, etc! But again, I don't make a big deal of it and it will go away over time. Enjoy! Janine Kaspin, and Enzo!
