The Horse Whisperer

She came, she saw, she conquered! We learned a lot and she worked with the big bad boy for quite awhile and gave my girl lots of tips for this new adventure we're taking this summer. My girl is used to controlled, proper, English riding in an arena, so this open field, hack and whack riding that I'm a little more accustomed to is a big new adventure!

Look at that horse actually listening to her! When they lick their lips and start smacking their mouth, it means they are listening and understanding. Who knew? He's looking very calm now. not like the other day when he kicked the dog and tried to toss me off!

Had a fabulous ride on this morning!
