Thanks Limo!

So Saturday I had to get up early and get to the barn so I could ride before Lester got his new shoes. Laura and Ronnie, my farrier didn't think I could do it, but I proved them both wrong by showing up at around 9AM. Ronnie always calls when he gets to our exit and when I didn't answer he said he had some choice words for me and thought I was still in bed sleeping. But he had to eat his words when he pulled up and saw my Honda:-) I was on Lester when he arrived and that is why I did not pick up my phone. We did walk, trot and CANTER again, both directions. No spooking, no fighting just working. The horse I know and love is back!

I first lunged him in the side reins. It takes him a little while to get "moving".

Here you can see him just barely picking up his feets- can't blame him, it was still early for me too;-) just plotting along.





Even though he's trotting at the pace of a fast snail he very willingly goes into the canter with just my voice.


Now Limo comes into "play"
Usually Limo won't chase the horses anymore so I don't know what got into her?? Note the mutant to the right of the photo...



After he settles down and realizes it's just Limo, he gives me this :-)
