I have two new students coming out today to start horseback riding lessons, Steve and his wife Lou. They live in town and have been trying to get out here for a couple months. So, they, and me too, are excited about getting started. I love it when folks want to learn about horses, not just riding.
Riding is simply the art of not falling off, but horsemanship is the ability to apply intuition, control and trust when it comes to working with horses, one is fun, the other is an adventure. I’m really happy that they have chosen the adventure. So we will get started this morning now that the wind has laid down for a bit.
Pocket Update: Pocket, the dog, is doing better and better. She still does not want to jump up on the couch or anyone’s lap yet and from time to time she will let out a little yelp. But she is back to staring at you when you are eating, and for that dog, that’s a good sign.
It has been pretty darn windy the past few days so the horses have not had the work that they need or deserve. But, now that the wind is slowing down a bit we will get them back at it.
Cold here this morning 25 degrees, but it’s warming up fast.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
