So here they are. She had her first lesson on him today, and since our instructor is still grounded (concussion), she rode with a couple of very advanced girls so they could ride along side and help her with her rein work. One of these girls happens to have claimed her as sister, and yesterday was riding the older brother to the horse my daughter rides. Of course I got a sisters and brothers shot!
(still working on getting him completely collected at a trot)
He was being goofy and wouldn't hold still, so the instructor said "If he wants to move his feet, make him move his feet until he'll stand still." She trotted around in circles while the other gals went through the pattern. She wore him down.
This is "big sis" and the full big brother to the horse my daughter rides.
And my daughter and her horse...spooky resemblence huh?
Turning on the haunches. My daughter thought this was SOOOOOOOO cool.
Sisters and brothers.
The horse my daughter used to ride is in the yard outside the outdoor arena mowing lawns. He's been picked because he's just an oversized labrador...here's the proof. He would walk up to me and nudge me, and lean on me and even even licked me once.
Oh, and just for the fun of it, the new boots she got yesterday.
