Hi everyone, well I thought I would update about Sage. Last week we rode through a very very nasty storm. There was thunder, lightning, wind, rain and hail. I tried parking us behind a pine tree. I looked back over her butt and saw a gray wall of movement coming our way. It was wind, rain and hail. The lightning was all around and we were a ways from the house. So we just rode it out. After the storm passed it turned nice and sunny for the rest of the evening.
The last weekend I went to my first horsemanship clinic. It was put on by Alice Trindle. It was great! Sage's first clinic as well. I was surprised at how calm she was compared to some of the other horses that came. It was a lot of fun and I learned alot. Alice helped me start getting Sage to carry herself and working off her butt more. She also helped me with my posture. I had an injury that caused my right side to weaken alot and I lean that direction. I'm working on always keeping that in mind to try and correct a bad habit.
I plan on going to another Alice Trindle clinic or next year hauling Sage to Eastern Orgeon to a retreat ride on their place. Work with cattle, trail ride and just learn and relax. It was a lot of fun.
Tomorrow I'm going to bathe her and pull her mane. I'd like to clean her up and take some halter pictures of her.
Here are some pictures. Thank-you for looking.
