Benji and Filly
This past weekend was a busy one. Sunday afternoon we went to the “meet and greet” at the art show in Deming New Mexico. Kathy and a hand full of artist from here in Hillsboro had their art on display there. Kathy’s work was displayed beautifully and she got the chance to visit with a lot of people about her art and, even sold a few pieces. Kathy continues to come up with new ideas that are amazing. I don’t know how she does it. Just when I think she has run out of ideas she comes up with something more interesting and more beautiful.
We came home from that event and took care of horses. Our guest from across the pond were eager for a trail ride so, I gathered up a couple of horses and off we went. Benjie is an actor, trying to make his way in Hollywood. So, this ride was good for him. He was thinking now he might be able to get involved in some work in Hollywood where horses were being used. He has very little experience but he did a great job. His wife, Filly is an experienced rider. Having ridden all over the world. She had not ridden western so it was a real treat to see how the other half lives.. We had a great time to say the least and am hoping that we will get to do more of that down the road.
Friday I worked with the outside horses I have here. I saddled the GRAY for the first time. He has been ridden before and therefore had to have been saddled. He did great. He is still very nervous about what’s going on around him, but he is coming around.
I slipped a surcingle on the Stallion Friday as well. I wanted to see how he would react to something on his back and the pressure of the cinch. I was surprised when he just walked off without a care. He did not buck, or ever offer to. He is still very nervous but is making really good progress. I can see me riding him in the next week or so…
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
