Driving Fun at the Stable
My husband and I went carting yesterday. We did it a little differently than usual. We usually both ride in the cart while one of us drives. Yesterday I drove Goldie in the easy entry cart and Hubby drove Honey in the Meadowbrook cart. We followed each other around the ranch. Goldie was a little antsy and would not stand still at the halt. After about an hour of driving and some practice standing he finally settled down well. Honey is always perfect. She looks so good pulling the Meadowbrook. She just walks along like she is giving tours in Savannah. All in all it was a fun day until we tried to trim Honey's ears. She absolutely hates that. We shaved her chin, nose, bridle path but the ears were a no go. We have to work on that.
We are getting ready to compete in a pony draft driving event at the Georgia National Fair in October. Hubby and I will be competing against each other! This is my first competition and Hubby's second. Last year he and Goldie won second place. That may be a hard act to follow this year! But it will be fun. This is a draft horse show so there aren't many events we qualify for so Hubby is doing the open over 50 event against the big boys and the under saddle obstacle event. Both events will be with Honey, his mare. I am doing the fun costume contest at the beginning of the show and the cart competition. I don't ride, yet, so that is all I am doing. Wish us luck!!
Ride a draft. It makes your butt look smaller!
