So for the first time I hand walked Tia down to a ranch about 20 minutes from where she is staying on Saturday. The person who owns the place Tia is at had an appointment with the equine chiropractor and was walking her horse down there so Tia and I decided to tag along.
She did really good on the walk there, only looked at the scary storm drain! And when we got there we were surprised to find out that the ranch was holding a Mounted Shooting Event in the main arena. For a horse that has never been to a ranch or seen/heard guns and balloons...Tia did really good!! She actually didn't spook at all, she jumped at the first gun shot, but throughout the remainder of the day the shots didn't seem to bother her at all. I am very proud of her!!
She is also looking better and better by the day!! I will have to get some pictures of her when I go out tomorrow morning.
