The highest priority in the training of El Blanco is relaxing his body AND mind. So no ‘fancy exercises’, but riding forward-downwards with relaxation. I’m sure he won’t forget all the exercises and am sure that he will be a superstar when he will get rid of his tension.
El Blanco needed 5 months to evolve from ex-stallion to a gelding. He is still a very energetic and sanguineous gelding, but I like that.
I can train him while other horses are in the riding arena, in the beginning that was not possible.
The motto with El Blanco is ‘festina lente’ (hurry slowly), to keep balance in his mind and to keep him relaxed.
El Blanco gives a summery touch to his appearance!
