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.
