Kelly - CHIN-UP AND KICK ON!!
Kellz stopped in last night to see the Pickle and myself...it was so good to see her, I miss her a lot! She's going to come out on Monday evening and watch us in the ring to make sure he is moving okay and not coming up short. Speaking of the 'Ring'...we rode in it last night!! :-) No circles, walk trot only, just over trot poles and across the diagonal, but it was great to be in there again. He was a star as he usually is and I think he enjoyed actually having to 'think' about what he is doing. He knows he isn't allowed to be a tourist in the ring and he felt very good. We had a couple of giraffe moments, but I chalk that up to him being hesitant to use himself because he doesn't want to hurt. Once I was able to convince him that it wasn't going to hurt, he felt smooth, floaty, and very light in his bridle...which was such such such a wonderful feeling to have again. I miss my horse. Today and Sunday, we will be back on the trails...he'll get tomorrow off.
So I came across a poem as a result of a friend's facebook status which sums up our situation perfectly...please enjoy.
