Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

First Day!

 First a little groundwork.
 Very compliant and some bonding
I put the tape on Blacky ( or Alpine... we haven't decided yet), and she comes in at 14.3 hands high and 846 pounds. Just right!


She has a very smooth walk and trot. Elaine hasn't taken her to cantor yet.

A 45 minute training session and the monsoon hit. I didn't ride as I am recovering from a dislocated thumb. It's a long story, but maybe I'll ride tomorrow.

Rode a horse one time in my life and would do it again. You are both blessed to have horses and ride them.

Oh, she's lovely! I like seeing the step by step work with her. I hope your hand feels better!

Your new horse looks to be gentle. Of course Elaine is no doubt an excellent rider and makes it look easy.
