Talking Pic Overload!!! Took my horse swimming:)

Sam in coming along sooooooo well with his going for swims
I have been teaching him that it is ok to go in the water
Today I took him over to them dam, and tried to get him to swim but all I could get was the water up to his tummy.
But that is really good considering that about 3 weeks ago he didn't even like going down the dam bank lol
Anyway enough talk here are the pics:






Walking back to paddock


Having a Roll



And all dirty again,


Hope you enjoy
Chloe

Congratulations. There is an exileration unlike anything to swim with your horse. You are lucky that it is warm enough there to do that. If I tried, I would be a popsicle. LOL He looks like he is really having fun.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Everything we do with horses is dangerous. Swimming is no different, but most people know their horses and take the time to see how the horse will react before just jumping into something. Just keep working simba and you will be doing this in no time.

That was his first time too. I had never had him in water deeper than his knees until that day. After the first time the bottom dropped off, he kept wanting to go back out there. I think he loved it and that is the only way I can swim in a lake; I am terrified of water I can't see into. I guess having him there is kinda like my security blanket. :p LOL
