Zayin and I are starting to become friends. He made big progress in giving me his trust that he could achieve everything I ask of him. I started to address his issues with the cinch and his emotional baggage connected to it by using the Figure 8 rope. This at the same time helped his physical relaxation and balance.
Zayin is a 6-year-old Anglo Arabian gelding. He was started when he was 3 years old, but due to some physical issues and lack of time, he was never ridden much. Additionally to that, he is a very hot and sensitive, at times very emotional horse. He is known to be rather sensitive to the cinch and the rider's leg, with a tendency to kick and buck.
