I imported my Casanova from Germany 2 years ago. He is a lovely mover, sound and bombproof. But as time passed, I noticed he was not mentally and emotionally engaged. He has a scar across his tongue, large spur marks, some arthritis on his neck and scar tissue on the sides of his mouth, which are gone now. Took off my spurs, the double bridle and have done a lot of ground work. One of his problems was he would not stand still at the mounting block. Changed saddles several times. Everybody told me to swat him and make him stand still. I did not. This lasted for almost a year, until I put my new Obrigado on him. He stood still!!!! And he stands still for me to mount every time!!! He was speaking loud and clear until we found the answer. Never a dull moment with our wonderful teachers and companions!
