A day with my girl!

Spent several hours with Ms. Flicka today...we did some desensitization stuff, lots of ground work, some undersaddle, took our first 'trail ride' since we've been in CO, gave her a bath, and finished up with an 'artsy' session, although I kept it short and sweet given we were both exhuasted, and it was hot by that time!

This one is from another day this week...




And for the ones today...

Figuring out that buckets aren't horse eating monsters...She can still be wary of 'stuff' being on her saddle, and eventually I will be trail riding, and using saddle bags, and what not, so I want her to get used to stuff like this, rather than 'hoping' she will just be okay with them when I decide to ride with a saddle bag. She actually did much better than I thought she would, given her history when I got her last year, and only threw a few good bucks in there, then just loped around, eventually dropping her head, and relaxing.

Thank you... and the pic of my kitty is one of my faves from today...this is a cat that loves going everywhere with us; he goes to work with me, and hangs out up front of the shop I work, greeting customers. He loves going for walks, and chasing bugs outside...he's passed out on my window sill now, after his long morning of chasing bugs and batting horse apples around
