Really, horse?!

The weather is crummy today so I thought I would start my show prep today. I washed socks, clipped every last piece of hair, did a little shopping, etc. Before I decide to put my horse out I decide to practice a little showmanship, which I admit, is falling to the wayside of riding. Typically it takes her 5ish back-and-forths to get her to finally square up. Today there just so happened to be some spare carrots laying around the barn. I bit them into piece and rewarded her for squaring up... She was hitting it in 2-3 back-and-forths!!! Really horse?! Wow... The things they will do for a carrot!

Some horses are very treat-oriented.

I always find it amusing to think that Z, all 1500 lbs os him, will work happily for tidbits of carrots.
