We are on day three of working with a bridle - or a bit in Bert's mouth. The first day I didn't have the bridle tight enough... had to move a bit to another bridle that I could punch holes in and shrink down. So the first day there was a lot of funny faces and moving his tongue all around. Second day was better and we worked in the round corral at the walk, trot, and lope as well as worked on side-passing both directions and turns on the hunches. I am amazed at how he crosses over his feet not hitting them. Very aware. Third day was a repeat of day 2 however progress is really showing as he has accepted the bit. When I take off the bit I am asking him to drop his head and give before I remove the bridle. Don't want to have to be reaching to put the bridle on or take it off.

In my horse search I was unable to find the perfect finished horse so I figured that Sugar is a wonderful horse I'll try again. So I found Olena Bert Dunit aka Bert. He is a 2 year old buckskin gelding that when I went to see we had that magical connection moment. Now as I work on his training the question stands will I sell him and do it again or keep him forever?
