I rode Dream

It was sort of anticlimactic.  I’ve been dying to get on her and decided to go out and try it.  She stood perfectly still while I saddled her.  I walked her around a bit, then lunged her some (she doesn’t have much of a gas pedal while lunging her and I hate to try push […]

Notes from the clinic.

Finally I am able to take some time to write about the clinic.  I’m probably going to wish that I had written sooner for fear of forgetting something, but hopefully not. I didn’t sleep very well the night before.  I was running through in my mind everything that I needed to bring with me and […]

A fun day!

While it didn’t start out so well with Merlin escaping into the back pasture, it ended great.  Around noon a woman that I had met a few weeks while she was out riding her horse on the road in front of our house called and asked if I wanted to go for a ride with […]
