Flashing news!

Bluebell was very good at accepting blankets, saddles and tack last winter, but then she got spooked just one time and that was it; she told us “no more $#¤&* on my back thank you!” So we moved on to Windflower and she learned fast, or more correct; she taught us how to ride on her back.

When Alexandra returned from town today she asked me; “I think I can mount Bluebell today”, so we went down to the pasture.

Rule no 1.

A proud Nokota mare like Bluebell wants us humans to do things straight, the Lakȟóta way; no halters, bits, saddles or other fancy stuff. Bluebell decided not to make a big deal out of it, so Alexandra just mounted up, I say no more!

Some horse experts might consider Bluebell a dangerous horse and would never ever mount a horse that’s not properly subdued to accept all kinds of tack, but this is different.  Nokota horses are known to think twice before they do anything hasty. I have  never seen a more calm and focused horse (and girl). This is how a quite safe first mount should be.

  1. åh, vad roligt att se! Bra jobbat!! Ser ju hur lugnt och fint ut som helst. Här har vi också tagit ett nytt steg i utvecklingen; Yrsa gick just några steg, för första gången sedan den där dagen för någon månad sedan. Kanske både hon och Bluebell bara behövde lite betänketid 😉
