My little ranch horse wannabe :)

So proud of my guy today! A cow calved way out in the back corner of the pasture and no one wanted to have to carry the calf back to the barn... So Jack did it- through the deep sticky mud too :) He's such a little sweetie <3

Yay! Good pony!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Good job! It can darn sure be a test on a horse that's never done it before to have a squirmy calf up there bawling and kicking around. Looks like he's done it a million times before.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Thanks guys! He is such a trusting horse. He consistently does whatever I ask of him and acts like he's done it a thousand times before. What a champ! So much different than the TB I had before him who acted like he'd never done the things I asked him to even though he'd done them a thousand We trucked that calf up and down hills and through a muddy stream all while the calf would randomly have spazzy fits and start kicking Jack in the head a little. He didn't care and would slow down or stop when the calf started to do that which made it so much easier for me to keep from slipping off of him. It's pretty hard to keep 100 lbs of flailing slimy baby from sliding off! :) I'm glad you guys enjoy the pic too!

Now that's awesome!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
