Charm, First Adult Rider

Charm, four-year-old Icelandic Horse, had her first adult rider mounting her today. They first mounted from the mounting block, and then from the ground.

At first Charm had to think about how to carry the rider's weight; she got better after walking around a bit.

They also worked on a "go forward" cue. That was a little confusing for Charm as she thought it meant "back up", but she got it after rewarding the tries.

Charm is bareback and bitless.
