Rocky Mountain horses at Mike Trader’s farm. (Excuse the ears.)
Those manes are gorgeous. This trainer gives lessons and provides natural horsemanship training, but he really specializes in starting and training Rocky Mountain trail horses, which he sells after training. There’s a video here where you can see him shooting a pistol off the back of one of his Rocky Mountain horses to demonstrate how cool, calm, and collected the horse is. He told me he felt confident he could shoot a pistol off Zip’s back now, though he hasn’t tried it yet.
Last night, Morgan and I went trail riding–Morgan on Zip, me on their horse Sierra. I call Sierra the mechanical horse because she is so well-trained.
Morgan is having the time of her life and can’t wait to bring Zip home!
