Soo..Copperhead and I went out to a nearby stable to watch a team penning practice..and ended up riding!
Here we are, just sitting on the bleachers watching people warm up, and this old guy (older gentleman) comes up to us and asks if we ride, and obviously we say yes since we do, and he offers us his horse to ride! :O
He had a beautiful, tall, stocky paint mare named Lady that knew all sorts of tricks, and she was a smooth ride! We each got to warm up for a few minutes on her and after Dave/Dan (can't remember his name D: ) ran once he let us alternate two runs with his team. I will say, his team was VERY forgiving of us newbies xD
And, I actually did something right, lmao. It caused us to lose our three, but I had to put the dirty one back over the timer, lol.
Everyone in general was very nice and helpful, and sadly, the next practice will be the last of the season. D: Sooo, I'm taking Alahna to see what she thinks about cows, being an OTTB and all, haha.
Anywho..obviously I can't end the post without pictures :p
