I’ve been following the videos posted by Elisa Wallace since she competed in and won the Extreme Mustang Makeover it in Clemson, SC last year. Her horse for that competition was downright amazing. Fledge is one of those horses you dream about hopping off the trailer when you go to open the door. The videos she did on his training really got me interested and showed me just how normal these horses can be.
She actually picked up two horses from the very same adoption I got Smokey at (was she who I was bidding against???). She’ll be competing in the Mustang Million in Ft Worth in September with these two. Her two horses have very different personalities and have required much differet things from her to get where they are. I’m really impressed with how bold she’s been with them. She took the route of getting on them before some of the things I have diddled around with. While there are things I would do differently than she has done, she’s the one making her living off training horses, so I have to kowtow to her knowledge. She’s also an eventer, which means she’s got way more guts than me to begin with, so there’s that too.
Her latest video about Rune and Nimh:
Anyhow, I recommend checking out her videos. She publishes them on a weekly basis so you get all the highlights without all the rambling.
