I was pretty against riding my 2 yr old but I gave in and have only been pretty much sitting on her for mounting and starting cues. If any of you have read my previous posts with Nova, you'll know I've been driving her since she was a yearling and it has really realllly paid off she knows all her cues perfectly. She's such a people pleaser and isn't spooky at all. Well today I got the idea that maybe my niece would like to try a very short ride in the round. She weighs 80 pounds soaking wet so I figure a short ride wouldn't be too bad. She had so much fun and Nova did so good for her. Nova's only thing is that she needs to be urged to keep walking when she's riding because she's used to me being behind her with the driving lines or lunging her. The whole ride may have been 5-10 minutes long Enjoy the pictures and I'll get the video up asap!
