SDF Sirene was weaned in September and has begun her basic training!
Kevin Wallin is a horsemanship trainer based in Lebanon, Indiana (https://www.facebook.com/kevin.wallin.378), and we selected him to work with Siri based on his excellent references. Siri appears to have inherited her fiery sire’s athleticism, and we felt the benefits of professional training at this stage in her development were a solid investment in this filly’s value. As a consummate horseman, Kevin brings a quiet, gentle and firm approach to his work. We’ve enjoyed watching Siri’s progress as she learns to join up with humans and to maintain a consistent respectful distance with her handler.
Within the space of two months Siri has gone from this:To this: Siri seems to be enjoying the interaction and has already learned to lie down on command!
As a weanling, she’s too young for any training that will stress her growing joints and bones. Kevin is focusing on simple games that keep her mind working and that will lay the foundation for her to become a steady, calm and willing equine partner in the future. Many of the games introduce her to some of the basic things she will have to accept on a regular basis – such as handling of her feet, blanketing, and the introduction of tack.
We’re looking forward to finding a five-star home for this outstanding filly, whether for the show ring or the trail. She should mature to be an excellent example of the versatility and train-ability of the Norwegian Fjord. She is up to date on vaccinations and worming, as well as farrier care; she has been DNA-tested, micro chipped and registered with the Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry. ‘Siri’ is available and ready for her new home; please contact us for video or for further details!
