Episode 46: Jane Jackson Pt 2: Sensitive Horses


Our conversation with Jane Jackson continues as she introduces us to her horse, Percy. Percy is a sensitive, athletic, smart thoroughbred cross who sits on the fringes of any bell shaped curve you might want to fit him into. He's presented Jane with many training puzzles. In this week's podcast she shares how she started him under saddle - and the monkey wrench he threw into that process, along with many other stories. We're heading towards a description of a procedure Jane developed to help Percy feel more comfortable leaving the barnyard and his familiar paddocks. But first we wanted to introduce you to Percy so you would have a better appreciation of the challenges this kind of horse presents.
