The Hoedown is just nine days away! Sarah and I settled on our music ( theme from The Man from Snowy River).... and found matching fun vests / bow ties/ white breeches/ tall boots and white wraps on the horses. It is all coming together nicely. At this point, I'm riding Rocky , an appendex, and Sarah is rding Bueller, the Belgium Warmblood.
Rode the black TB , Havakatz, again today. His gait is smooth as silk and it is so wonderful to ride a horse in a such collected frame! Really feel like we are making great progress! So greatful to Kim for allowing me to use her wonderful horse.
For all Pan Pan's followers, he continues to enjoy country life . He has become a bit over posessive of his girl..Princess Fiona. And when she is out of her stall..his crys of love are recognized all over the stable area... and beyond! He so looks forward to our rides ..I think if he could saddle himself he would. He seems to be doing much better with his new shoes and reduced schedule. Pan is still the star around the barn,collecting love pats and friendly hello's from students and staff alike. If only I could clone him. What a boy.
