"Boob to mane" release--love it!!
Thanks, Velvet! He was excellent, I was so proud of him. His first two shows, he called and screamed and went crazy when left alone, but Saturday he was behaving perfectly. I was surprised to notice that I seem to have totally corrected my problem of looking down at the horse when I ride. I'll have to work on not sitting back too soon after the jump...I did find myself catching him in the mouth occasionally. What's a press release, if I may ask? I've never heard of it.
I stayed to watch my friend show in the 2'6" children's hunter pony division; she rides at this barn. I would love to take lessons here, but first I need to find a job to afford them!
The farrier put bright orange pads on him instead of the usual hunter green....I'm going to have to get him to go back to the neutral color when he comes next
