Evaluation and Training

Amaal is very inquisitive and loves people and attention.  He halters, leads, stands quietly for the vet and the farrier, lunges in both directions, comes when he is called and halters easily in the field. He bathes well, is comfortable with dogs and gets along very well with other horses. Amaal stands to be saddled and has had a lot of ground work done. 

Amaal has been started under saddle by Amy Andreson for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  He placed in the top 5 in the 2016 Challenge. 

She has Amaal going under saddle at a walk, trot, and canter.  They’ve ridden in an arena, on trails, and at events.  They’ve also been in drill team performances, and she’s ridden him bareback.  Amy says he’s doing awesome!  She says that he is very brave and curious, is very accepting of new things, and likes having a job, likes having something to do. He is a forward mover with very smooth gaits.
