Cloud back in work with Jeremy Janjic, progressing from her preliminary three weeks of handling/breaking. This would be her third week of being ridden; after 2 weeks she was moving freely forward in all paces; this third week has shown a noticeable consolidation of her understanding of the aids; she's more forward moving, into the bridle and more adjustable with her paces. Still a baby, she can come home next week to grow into her physical frame some more and "think" about what she's learnt. This really seems to work well with the Saddlebreds; sfter a few months off they go back to work physically stronger, without having forgotten anything they've learnt, and ready to progress further in their training.
