Aint been around much actually been out training and working n stuff..lol
Saturday our 2 y/o Dixie got an honest to goodness first ride. As I have gotten old and far too smart to be the one that actually crawls aboard first these days I put the young man that is interested in my youngest daughter on the hurricane deck.. evil? Probably but I'm ok with that, he's a pretty good horseman. Any way after taking the reins from him for being a bit heavy handed and she's still settling into the bit. (she pitched a little) I tied the lead into reins and had him use the rope halter and lead. Little Dixie looked like she'd been being ridden for months. Did circles then walked out, turns, stops, and pays attention! WOOHOO I was afraid she might be a bit more bull headed than that, bout 10 minutes then unsaddled and brushed her, she's acting like a 4 year old broke mare. Stoked here, looks like she's going to be the horse I wanted for my daughter after all.
