Monarch’s Reign was purchased by Suellen Slockbower of Roswell, GA in December 2010 as a Prospect Horse from the Bits & Bytes Farm Web site.
Cold weather and snow kept Suellen form riding her new horse the past few weeks. Today on their second ride together, Suellen and Monarch worked on half-halts, walk/trot, walk/halt transitions and she taught him how to back up. Monarch was just as quiet as if he had been ridden every day since the last ride. Suellen learned to avoid the other riders in the arena by keeping her head up and her vision open. She also learned to take charge and not let Monarch turn towards the gate. When the ride was finished, both the horse and the rider were happy and relaxed - the best way to end any ride!
