George was fantastic! You would never have known anything had happened. He was forward and happy and I was grinning from ear to ear (anybody having seen me likely would have thought I was a lunatic). What a feeling!!

Crazy Arabs, LOL!!!!
Today, I rode my little Alaska, who I broke when she was 3, rode about 15 times and then bred her early in her 4th year, and then she had my 4 Schwarzwalder fillies, so it has only been 8 YEARS since I last rode her!!
She walked off like it was yesterday, and we worked our way up to trotting in the driving arena, and she was GREAT! I was grinning like a fool, too!! This mare is SO beautiful, I will have to post a picture. Have to take them first!! I want one more Schwarzwalder out of her, then I can do rides on her. What a pleasure she is.
I also worked Lucy with the new saddle, and a crupper. I almost got on her, she held my weight , and was calm as I did my flapping saddle swinging stirrups patting while hanging over your back deal. Maybe there is hope for her to be an equine good citizen, LOL.
SO glad George is back!!
Headed for the Kentucky Horse Park to do some carriage driving with Taffy Clayton tomorrow, so excited to meet her!! Perhaps someone will take some pictures.
