Cindy (ZGC Cinnamon Ice), my four-year old mare, went to the horse trainer’s two months ago and I rode her for the first time on Tuesday (9/15/09)! It was wonderful. I was pretty nervous, but it went well. Cindy is so responsive and willing to please, I couldn’t ask for a better horse. I didn’t use a bridle, only a halter with reins tied to it, and a saddle. Cindy only needs light leg pressure, a cluck or two, and a little pointing her nose in the right direction to go forward, backward, left or right on the forehand, left or right on the hind leg, or side-passing.
