At the beginning of July two new curly horses came to live with us; Z Silken, a lovely 8 year old smooth coated mare and *Jondra DMC Suncatcher, a sweet 4 year old gelding. Both of them came from Jondra Curly Acres in Englehart, Ontario.

Both have training and will be added to our lesson program.

I got the chance to ride Silken on Friday and I am so happy to have her. She is exquisitely sensitive (not reactive) and tries very hard to understand, and get correct, what you have asked. She truly "listens" to your seat and balance changes and a whisper is as loud as a shout to her. I suspect she will be destined for returning adults and more accomplished youngsters (but I'm guessing that she has LOADS to teach me!) I love her sweet face and her desire to be with you.

I have not gotten the chance to ride Suncatcher yet, but have worked with him using Parelli's 7 Games. What a superstar! Our French student, who is an accomplished & able equestrian, has been riding him and she says that he is well balanced at the walk and trot and goes well.

We thank Andrea for having raised these two lovely horses and having them trained so well. Thank you Andrea!!
