Some of you may remember Stella from a previous post. She is well on her way to becoming a great shooting horse but there is still work to be done. This is technically the second video I have done on her and I have decided to make her journey into a series. The "Making a Shooting Horse" series is going to be on going and will probably take over a year to complete. I am by now means an amazing horse trainer. I make my share of mistakes. However, I am always studying and learning from others. I truly believe that you can learn something from everyone you meet when it comes to training horses. Take what you like and leave the rest. What works for one person may not work for another. I offer to you just another way to train a horse for mounted shooting. So enjoy this episode and as always, feel free to ask questions in the comment section below.
I met Jessie Johnson in 2014 when she attended her first shoot. Since then we have competed against each other, traveled to World's together, and have formed a great friendship. Even though she lives three hours away, whenever we see each other, our friendship always picks up right where it left off. It's been so much fun to see her set goals and achieve them. She was gracious enough to let me interview her this summer and I'm so glad that she did. She is a rising star in the mounted shooting world and defiantly one to watch.
