We have been working on getting the fillies to cross our creek for the last week or two. Well, today Saro did it I came prepared with a rope halter, 14' lead rope and short whip. She had refused to cross while I'm on her back so figured I would try to drive her from the ground today. No need, she went down the bank with just a bit of hesitation, got to the water, JUMPED across the creek and lunged up the other side I was not prepared at all.
I stayed on but I'm sure my inner thighs will be bruised from jamming into the pommel We turned around and crossed it again....and again. Each time she was better. By the end she was stopping mid stream to take a drink
I'm so proud, she's so brave, she's such a good girl
Now on to Shiloh
