Horse Training January 2006

There are not many days in Manitoba that we get to turnout on our horses for training, but this year we picked a nice day in January to freshen up some of our riding and grooming skills.  Horses are groomed to Military standards with cut tails and bridle paths. Attending were, Staff Sgt. Stanick on Chaka Zulu, Trooper Delannoy on Drake, Trooper Gilbert on Mercedes Bends, and Trooper McFadden on Sweet Sister Kate. Drills practiced included:

  • attention
  • wheel
  • single file march
  • spacing
  • sections
  • standing
  • bridling/saddling
  • mounting and dismounting
