Day 1

Yesterday was day 1 of the horsemanship challenge for me.  I loaded up Jessie and Kali and was heading down to Brooks to ride.  It was a little bit colder than the forecast said but I was too excited that I was going anyways...after all the arena is heated. 
Got to the number 1 corner and got thinking I shoulda called and made sure there was open riding but most days nothing goes on until the late afternoon evening.  Well as I pulled up I got suspicious when I saw the Stampede Ranch truck.  But wasn't concerned until I come around front and there was about 10 trucks there.  Sure enough booked from 8-6 for colt starting.  Ahhh!!!!

Well felt like a waste of trip but I went to a few places in town and then got lunch and headed home.  I didn't get much work in so spent a few minutes just working with the two leading and turning and stopping and making sure they listened.  Worked well.  Then I fed them and was done for the day.  So only about 15 minutes of horsemanship in today.  But at least I know I have the energy to go and back and I'm sure to ride too.

And a pretty pic of Razz just cause shes so pretty :)  and Disco I love her hair :)

aw man, I hate that... Or I hated that when I had to go ride at a different arena.

But at least you were able to get some time in and that is important for sure. I know you know that sometimes its those little sessions where we just do ground work and stuff that are the most important.

I love Disco's hair too. She looks soft and fluffy.
