I'm going to elaborate on Seaton over the coming months. You can see photos of him on the Monty Roberts Horsemanship Fan page https://www.facebook.com/groups/1444288552464378/
He was a rescue some years ago in a very poor state, whipping/rope cuts on his legs, which still have left scars today. The old chap that rescued him loved him dearly for the 10 years he had him, but he only every kept him as a pet not a riding horse.
When the owner died he ended up coming to the field near me to a lovely gentle young lady on loan and she thought for the rest of his days, but as soon as the head collar came off she couldn't catch him, which is where I became involved.
All the work done with Seaton has been done completely at liberty in a 2ish acre field because of his past, so it's taken months to achieve where we are today.
A little set back recently happened where he was whisked away by the owners 'thoughtful' relatives, because the widow couldn't afford to keep him, which was horrific not only for Seaton and his companion, but also the whole herd of horses where we rent land. I've never felt such quietness in a deadly way when he was taken. 3 days later we had him back, injured, lame and more scared and nervous than before. the thoughtful relatives gave him to a young girl as a ride able project, it was when I showed him he wasn't just a small project they fairly threw him back at us. He's now back with his companion mare.
More on his journey to come and your thoughts will always be of value if I'm missing something ;D
It's all about the horse!
