Squweeeeeeee!!!!! Summer is here!!!!!! Well, I mean, not officially....but close enough to get excited.
Long weekend with the pony. Life with horses is truly a journey with lots of peaks, valleys, little bumps in the road and long, lovely meadows full of wildflowers. We've been having some bumps and today was most definitely a meadow full of happy, dancing, daisies. LOL.
Koda has a new friend. Well, one of my girlfriends got a horse, so by default, Koda has a new friend. LOL. They are stalled beside each other and we hope someday they will be trail buddies. Right now they are working separately as my girlfriend gets used to her steed and he gets used to life at the barn.
We did a bunch of stuff today in the arena. Bending, weaving, trotting, perfecting our "whoa" and backing. He did great. Very responsive and even when he decided not to be it was fairly easy to bring him back into the mindset.
The barn was INSANE today. Two horses leaving, lots of people out, tons of activity but nice - everyone hung around for a long time after riding and enjoyed the sunshine.
In Loving Memory
