Today, I had a first, and it was AMAZING!
Makana and I did our round pen work, pretty standard for a Sunday per our routine, practicing commands, forward and back up, and working on our communication.
We worked it well, and she did magnificently the whole time once she got her yayas out and her head and arse wired back together.
We went back to the pasture, I picked her feet one more time, and turned her loose.
Then, I got a wild hair up my six, put her halter back on,tossed the lead rope over her neck, tied it off through the rope clip, and moseyed her over to the fence so I could hop on her......bareback.
My pucker meter was totally redlined, but I still felt confident this was a good idea.
I hopped on, and we just sat there for a few minutes, getting the feel of each other, and letting each other relax into this wonderful new experience.
I had my honey lead us around a couple times in circles, just to get the feel of this new means of interacting with her....
What a JOY!
It was amazing!
I can't wait to do it again!
I love my honey and I love my horse!!!
