Both Brenna and Splash persevered and had a great lesson!
So, I have to tell you. Splash hit a little bit of a soft mound of dirt in the corner of the ring and stumbled. My heart just about leaped out of my chest. Literally, I thought I would leap over the fence in a single bound. But just as fast as the horse stumbled, she recovered and kept going. The trainer gave Brenna a high five for keeping her cool. I think it happened so fast that Brenna didn't really have time to react except for "Woah! That was crazy!"
I realized today just how much concentration she has to put into each lesson. Head up. Reins held just right. Lead the horse. Look where you are going. Uhhh, she lost me on head up.
It was a beautiful day today. Dare I tell you it was 78 degrees? Spring has sprung a little early out here. There are two new members of the stable:
This hungry man is about one month old. He had just woken up from a nap-sound asleep flat out on the hay!
I believe this beauty is 2 WEEKS!!!!
I'm hoping Benna can get back next week. It's supposed to rain again Monday, so we will have to see.
Hoping you all did something you enjoyed today!
