Friday my buddy Mark and I rode up in the national forest to check on the fire. This was the first really big ride outside for the Gray. He did fine. He got a little jumpy when we went thru some bushes but I think that's just because he has never had the chance to get out and it is all new. All in all he keeps making good progress.
I have a new student taking riding lessons. Her name is Mary and she is doing good. She rode for the first time last week, with me that is, and this morning we are going to take the skills she learned in the arena and try them outside. I will try to remember to get some picture for you all.
The Stallion is doing well. The owner Wanda, told me, the last time she was here, that riding the horse was really not that important to her. She has other horses to ride if she want to go for a ride. What she really is looking for is to be able to control the horse on the ground. So, that's what I have been focusing on the past couple week and will continue the rest of this week. He is scheduled to go home the first of July.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
