Critique if you feel the need to, but I know what Ricci's problems are, she's a work in progress, and has already come along heaps from where she was when I got her. =]
But I was so happy to get my friend out, she's a great rider, and the only person I have nearby that can ride Ricci as well as I can. Sounds like I'm bragging, but I'm not. Everyone else either just trail rides or is way too timid to give Ricci a good, productive ride. So I was ecstatic that she came out, and even more ecstatic when I got on after her and found Ricci still light, soft, and responsive to my aids. =D
And all the girls sleeping in the sun later this afternoon.
