Reindeer Realness

Lex was SO much fun today. She was quiet and chill, and seemed to enjoy trotting over poles on the ground. She pricked her ears and went right to them, trotting over the middle, and then trotted straight away. I was proud of her. I think I'm going to hold off on cantering - her balance isn't so good yet, and I don't want to freak her out. The one problem we're having is that she wants to stretch her nose to the ground all the time, and not just when I tell her it's okay, so she's leaning on the bit a lot. We'll fix that, though.

After the ride, we played dress-up with my gloves after watching another horse get a sweatshirt draped over his head and not care. I wanted to see what she'd let me do. I was pretty much collapsing in giggles so it's amazing I got any pictures at all. I love this horse.

  3. Hooray for a good ride! I agree, though. No need to push cantering until they're ready for it.
