WOW it's been a loooong time since I've last posted! I apologize for that!
Well, a lot has happened! I'll start with Cavallo!
Well, since my last post, I've realized that he really isn't safe to ride yet. I had only been doing things in zone 1, so how DARE I ride him?! Silly me!! So, I've quit getting on. I've been working on LOTS of friendly game with the big green ball, tarps, cones, barrels, just about any toy you could think of! I've also been doing a lot of zone 3 driving to simulate riding. Well what do you know? His confidence has grown so much, along with our relationship! I am truly in absolutely no rush to get on this guy. It'll happen when it happens. Until then, we'll keep enjoying online (and occasionally) some liberty! (=
My main squeeze! (= Over the winter, he lost a lot of weight. Mainly because he is now 25, and because we have a bigger herd since last winter and he is at the bottom of the totem pole. He is gaining weight, though. In fact, quite well! We just recently got the Parelli Patterns, so we've been working a lot on those! WOW! What a difference! Our play sessions now have a purpose and riding has become so much more fun! I'm so excited! This saturday we have a Independent Seat & Fluidity Workshop with 4* Parelli Professional Nita Jo Rush! EEEEEKKKK! I'm so excited!!
So, that's what's been going on in my horsey life lately!
