Oh god she's gorgeous, I used to have an Arab mare that looked just like her and also had the very pretty eyes that looked like she was wearing eyeliner just like your girl lol.
Those front muscles are really defining themselves :)

So I chucked nyx's saddle on took it slow waved the saddle cloth around, that was no worries. Put on her saddle and tightened the girth, once again no worries and then tapped the saddle flopped around the stirrups not a care in the world lol. Done all the normal stuff like backing up, flexing etc and she done so well. So tomorrow ill ask a little more from her if its not to wet to lunge.

Look at the face, classic lol

Bahaha love the face. Looks like you've done well with her. By the way I want your saddle. It looks so comfy.

And thank you Lizzy is the resident wanderer pet. Haha she gets pats from everyone because she uses those eyes and that adorable face, she loves attention.

Thanks! Sometimes I forget she's only 2, she's such a good girl.
I love my saddle, it is super comfy, I actually can't remember ever falling out of it either.

That's it! Lol the whatever face.

I can totally see how lizzy gets all that attention, so cute :)

So I tried to take Lizzy out on a little ride by ourselves this morning. Turns out she's spooky as all get out when we are alone. So we just went a ways down the road then found a good obstacle for her to go around to turn around so she didn't think it was her idea. Then we really got to test our work with no bolting back to the barn.

She was doing her jig most of the way home so when we got to the driveway I made her keep going past it. We didn't turn around until the barn was back out of sight and I think she got it. She walked calmly back to the driveway, didn't try to break into a trot at all.

And she has put on enough weight and muscle that she no longer needs a thick saddle pad with another folded up under the front. Woo hoo.

Haha it's pretty fun usually as long as it stays controlled. But lizzy has the history of bolting and dancing that ends with her front getting pretty light. Otherwise the jig seems like a good workout. And it just looks cool lol.

I, too, like your saddle Nyx.

I wanted a halfbreed but they were all too long for Rosie's back

University open day today! Hopefully they'll tell me something good, I am going to have a one on one talk thing with some people who apparently know something.

So glad I am not working though. Yesterday was so long.
