Fox is a very macho horse who I have owned since he was 3 and he is long in his body, and heavy in his neck and shoulders – plus he suffers from stress induced head-shaking.  I have trained him with Positive Reinforcement, using Straightness Training and Academic Art of Riding principles to become softer and lighter than many horses could manage to be even with better bodies and easier minds.

I am proud of Foxs’ achievements.

This is how Fox looked when he was rising 6 years old
