Evaluation and Training

When Phantom arrived at Bluebonnet, her had not been handled.  He spent time with a trainer to be tamed and start his halter training.  He came along quickly and is a sweet, willing young horse who has the potential to do almost anything! 

He spent time with a youth handler in the summer and fall of 2018 preparing for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  He’s had a lot of ground work and learned to navigate trail obstacles – all skills that will be useful when it is time to start him under saddle!

This summer (2019) he spent time with an adult handler preparing for a repeat visit to the In Hand Division of the Training Challenge.  She has continued working on his ground manners, teaching him to navigate new obstacles, and teaching him to carry a saddle.  He’s going to be a great partner for his lucky adopter!
