Day 3: First day in the saddle

The mustang (still not named) continues to impress us. He trusts and accepts most anything Ruben tries with him. He is intelligent has learned a lot in a few short days. Ruben takes it slow, but does not treat the mustang differesntly than other horses. Caution is exercised with all horses and Ruben's ability to read a horse is phenomenal. This mustang has yet to buck once. I believe it is because Ruben develops a raport with each horse he trains. The horses learn to perform because they can, not because they are forced.

It's been a while since you've posted. I can't wait to see how far you've come since Day 3.

Ruben, we saw you at Idaho Horse Affairs and you made a huge impression on all four of us. I am looking forward to arranging a clinic for the Baker City area sometime in this year 2008. I truly hope it works out! Pat
