Attended another Paralympic Clinic today... with the Paralympic coach , but this time it was about hour and fifteen minutes away. Habakatz was right on and we had one of the best rides ever. However, as with every adventure we had one "interesting " moment. He tripped at the trot ,scarred himself ( the train whistle blowing in back ground didn't help) and went in a full canter. After quickly re-collecting my reins in one hand and grabbing the saddle with the other, we did several very small circle at the canter. I guess watching all those rodeo spins kicked in and I was able to bring him back. Thanks to Sarah, my instructor, for being there for me as groom , trainer, horse transporter and whatever else is needed., and to Kim for allowing me to ride her incredible horse. It was a lovely day....and Harbakatz passed our "dry run" away from home with flying colors. Next stop.... the show circuit!
