We hooked up Gavotte and her Uncle Chance yesterday for the first time in about 2 years!! They were SO good! Not perfect, but workable. They WERE perfect getting hooked up, though, two statues in the field while we monkeyed about with the harness fit.
The carriage was rooted in place behind the garage, where it has been for 13 months, since we moved. I did not touch the brakes....until they get a once over from the carriage mechanic(DH), I was afraid they would lock up.
We did some arena work, and Gavotte was her perfect self, work, work, work, while Chance took a bit to get comfortable, then he was wonderful.
