Our little baby Coliban Strawberry has been broken in by her owner, and that's how it went. DAY 1 Hi Lena, just an update on my beautiful Coliban Strawberry. Today was the first day I put a saddle on her, backed her up, walked, trotted and took her out and about the station without any company! So much in one day and not a single refusal or bad emotion. A natural soft trot, soft mouth and so much body to hang onto. No more small horses for me. This ones something special! Can't wait to see what the next few years bring Honestly - I've broken in 4 in the last 18 months.. I didn't do any ground work like I have. I've lunged her twice since owning her and had a bridle on her twice. I put the saddle on and hopped straight on. She's naturally forward moving - little squeeze and we were off. I think the biggest difference was the amount of body between my legs - so stable - so much centre of gravity. She's was smooth and comfortable. Not that awkward uncomfortable feeling in a small battle young horse. Ahh I'm so happy! I've never taken a horse straight out of the round yard writhing 15 minutes of a first ride. I had my two border collies running around her feet and rode down to my barrels and walked around all the machinery - well and truly away from the horses in the paddock!! I went home and got straight off! There was nothing more I could ask from her - she was already do advanced! My heart is beaming out of my chest! With my choice in purchasing her! With her maturity! And our future!!
