I was so happy, and couldn't really brag to anyone...
OMG totally had that moment yesterday when I was riding, my boy usually never engages his back, but halfway into our riding session I kept feeling his back under me and I kept looking behind me to see if he was trying to poop... but it was actually him using his back! I was so happy! And I couldn't tell anyone but my trainer lol..
Little things that make me happy is when I got to grab my boy from the paddock he will sometimes prance up towards me all happy, and this maybe happens a couple times a week so I just love when he suprises me! Also yesterday while riding, he often times has an itch on his leg and I give him his head, well... I thought he was about to itch his leg.. then his head came back his mouth full of hay! That was sticking out under the fence I was riding in.. all the girls I was riding with busted out laughing.
The little things I love is how my boy acts and how he makes me laugh with silly things, and the fact he loves to make me happy... My trainer tells me that we are perfect for each other and it's true! He makes me soooo so happy.
