19th April, 2009 Working weekend finale

The demonstration at the Caspian Horse Society was extremely interesting. I worked first of all with Hendon Basil, top, before Julie and then Dale worked with him. He is ten years old and hasn't allowed anyone to handle him since he was two. He made good progress. I also worked with Troy (bottom), another stallion, demonstrating desensitisation techniques as well as a colt and two mares. These are delightful and intelligent horses albeit, small but perfectly formed. It was great to find five trainee vets in the audience as well as people from the IHDG, NFED and officianados of the Caspian Horse.
