Meet 2016 Andalusian filly, 'Plata de Coro' out of Stallion 'Hopi RMH' and Dam 'Virtuosa de RMH'.
Training has begun with this girl and what fun we are having! Check out her videos below...
Lydia is absolutely a Future
Dressage Star! She has great movement and a great
mind! We've 'played' with her several times a week since she was 5 months old...
little did she know she was learning how to be an amazing little filly!
Lydia can already do so much!! She loves to play at liberty
and learn tricks including: Spanish Walk, she'll pick up hats, mirror /
shadow handler and she's learning the horse 'square dance', "shake" (like a dog shake's
their paw) side pass towards and away from the handler, pull her tail
to back her up, early stages of bowing / laying down and more! PLUS, she has
absolutely mastered all of the basics and will calmly: load the trailer,
stand for clipping, stand tied, perfect for hoof handling (farrier says she's
better than most full-grown horses), easy to catch, she'll pivot on hindquarters / forequarters, she
understands lunging (she's done VERY little lunging.... just concept
lessons) and she enjoys being pony'd! She is now being hauled off-site for trail rides and shows about once or twice a month! So, she is getting lots of great experience!! She'll cross anything you put
in front of her including walking over bubble wrap, tarps, water, poles, wooden platforms, etc. And the best part… This filly will
literally come running to me when she hears the leaf blower turn on... that's
how brave this girl is!
is sooo easy with this girl and the foundation has been laid for under saddle
work. She’ll pack around a surcingle
with stirrups attached no problem. She understands the concept of pressure and
moves according to different ground cues. She already understands how to independently move shoulders, rib cage
and hind quarters.
has the BEST personality!! She's curious and her first reaction is always to
investigate. She is very smart and loves to
perform. If I'm around her, but not playing with her (like cleaning
stalls), she's just start down her list of tricks to get attention. She's
a laugh-out-load character!!
had a great upbringing - running around on about 25 acres. She’s used to other horses, goats, dogs and
neighbors have donkey’s, cows and llamas that she’s used to seeing. She's
out 24/7 with access to free choice hay or grass (depending on the
season). She is stalled during bad weather and has no issues. She's
UTD on deworming, farrier care and vaccinations. And she already has
a very long mane! Lydia is also
VERY safe to be around. I trust any aged
friend or family member around her.
