    Funny thing:

    I wasn't exactly sure where to post this and here seems like the best place so sorry if it seems totally out of place...

    On Thursday I was riding Lacey and I decided to see how slow and how fast I could make her walk without breaking the gait. I know she can do that really well at the trot and I was bored so I figured it might be fun.

    It was crazy. I got her walking so slowly that a WP horse would be jealous. And then I got her to walk so fast that it was almost like we were trotting fast, only walking. To give you an idea, the slow walk and the fast walk were as different speed wise as the walk and a canter. I was really surprised at how easily she figured out exactly what I was asking and how happy she was to try. It was really cool. I was also having her go from a fast walk straight to a slow walk and back again.

    I find it funny how there are so many things that I'm hesitant to try with her because I'm worried she might have a negative reaction and then I try them and she all "Look Mom! I did it! Be proud of me!" and she shows me that I shouldn't ever not try something with her. I think sometimes that she has expectations for her own limits, in a horsey sorta way, and that she gets proud when she surpasses those limits too, yknow?

    I really like her.

    This will come in handy on our road rides for sure!

    That's great to hear. She sounds like she just wants to please. It's amazing what they'll do for us if we just ask.

    That's great! I have a feeling if I tried that with my girl Missy we would have a lot of trotting and not enough walking. Lol
