A Beautiful Day

Look what we did today. Sammy has been long lined before but he's really getting good at it. Linda is a pro at long lining and I'm very much a student. I got it in the end but I am much more comfortable just ground driving. Sammy is such a good boy and has caught on to that very quickly. Our figure 8's aren't perfect but we're getting there. Here's his cute trot.


And his canter the other direction. The saddle pad was a gift from my COTH secret santa a few years ago. He is anything but the hot chili pepper.

And then we moved on to the ground driving.



It didn't take long for him to get bored.


So we opened the gate to head out of the round pen.



We made it outside. Next time, we conquer the pond!


It's great to have T-Shirt weather back.

I love how Sammy is filling out! He's really looking grown up.
