Manaia & Pax

Hi, my name is Manaia and my little ‘mustang’s name is Pax. Since I picked this lovely filly up on December third, 2016, she has learned how to lead, pick up all feet, enjoy scratches, blanket, lunge, bow, and lay down. I have opted to keep this special little mustang, she is my first real wild horse project and I couldn’t be happier. My hope for her is dressage in the future!
Today is Jan. 8th and Pax is coming along nicely. She still struggles with leading beside me but is getting better each day. She is one of the sweetest fillies I have ever met and I am absolutely thrilled for her future as an event or dressage horse.
Recently, I took Pax down to our local arena and free lunged her since she had so much energy. She is extremely athletic and catty, and is a huge people pleaser. I also put a cone on her butt and she was not too sure about it! I also worked on bowing/laying down and she’s doing very well. I’m very excited to start this girl under saddle this summer!
Pax and I went down to Ridgefield to do the WA State Horse Expo this past weekend and she was a rockstar! I am so surprised with how well she did in such a big atmosphere. She seemed to love being the center of attention! She also shared a stall with her twin Chex and they became instant friends!
