Just can wait to get out to the barn some days!
SO happy with my little pokey mare. Thrilled that she’s developing a bit, and that she is actually, slowly, coming along. Although pokey…
Getting her canter to look like this, no matter how briefly, has been very hard work.
She’s not handing anything to me for free, – especially not the canter. Or the trot. Or, you know, the bend.
Yes, she has issues. Yes, I often have to tell my self to accept her for what she is. Yes, I never forget that this is a wonderful and fun challenge to train with her on my own.
She’s a little gem! I know I am lucky to have her, to be at Twisted Oak Ranch, and to have good friends there.
If we go together like this, a second or two, it’s all worth it:
The start-up plan was to make her a nice easy mare, with good scores at 2nd level. Very ambitious on my part. If I can do this, so can you!
Will we make it one day? Who knows, but it’s really fun along the way! And she’s become a wonderful friend, too. What more could I ask!?
Thank you SO much for taking time out of your day to check in on us.
Hugs, Elinor ♥
