Welcome to all the new folks Grace:
Im glad things are going so well, your post had me LOL'ing, glad to see it's not only Sassy that get's the devil in her Corgi:
Everytime you post about going on a long trail ride in your new saddle I cringe at the pain you might go through! Is the saddle any better?
I watched my trainer ride Sapphira on Thursday, she has such beautiful movement, and she is sooooooo pretty it takes my breath away that this stunning horse is actually mine. She pulled her I am not working fit on the lunge line, apparently she was quite vigorous about it lmao! My trainer says she's going very well, is VERY stubborn and VERY smart, not a good combo, but she does want to please lol, she really does work her heart out when I ask her for just that little bit more.
Had my lesson on Friday, it.was.fantastic! Sapphira went extremely well, she is so forward at the walk, trot, and canter it takes my breath away. Did groundwork, trotting poles, circles, yielding of forehand and haunches, whoa's, and stand over the weekend. Going to ride tomorrow morning, I don't want to bore her with -only- riding.
She lost another tooth, this was her 4 year old tooth, the one in the front. She kept lipping my jacket, and tugging on it, I kept reprimanding her, and when I tried to check her mouth she kept tossing her head until......she spat it out of the side of her mouth. I laughed so hard at the expression on her face, it was priceless!! I picked up the tooth and put it with her things at home.
Back to work for me on Tuesday, my week off was super! Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow, happy trails and ride safe folks
