One Month Progress Report

Canoodler is progressing along just fine. We've been working with Emily Brollier for about a month now and he's getting better and better each ride.  He has some physical issues (Putting Humpty Dumpty Back Together) and we have a team to help him out with Core Therapies doing chiropractic work on him and Equi-Librium Therapy doing massage and laser therapy. Fitness is also a big part of this as he's weak on his right side.  We hack out with others and now I feel pretty good about hacking him alone in the fields he knows.  I try really hard to change things up and keep him happy.

Canoodler, after he drinks will keep his tongue out for a few minutes just like small foals do when they suckle.  In the background he is receiving a laser therapy treatment from Equi-Librium Therapy.
Canoodler is pretty good, no, he's actually WORLDS BETTER than Ollie at going out for hacks. He's not perfect but he's real good.

We are planning on the Snowbird Schooling show at the Kentucky Horse Park at the end of the month.  I'm super excited about it and hope we have a fun time!

So here is our video comparison.  The first video is from January 1, 2015.

And here we are on February 1, 2015

I think we are on our way!
