Calypso Under Saddle

It was an amazingly warm day today so I decided to head out and work with the ponies. My plan was to ride Dee but for some reason, sometime last night, she decided that jumping the fence was a great idea. Well she didn't make it and got her back legs caught up and sliced one open, **** horse!

Soo...I decided I would see how Calypso would handle and saddle. These pictures explain perfectly how she did.











This one just show her personality so well...I just finished taking the saddle off and was putting it in the barn...she is just standing there like an old pro waiting for me to come back out to her!

She did very well!

It was up to 8 degrees (celcius) so it wasn't bad at all, just looks crappy, lots of snow!

She looks very quiet. Lucky you! My horse bucked like crazy when I put saddle on her for the first time.
