While we were gone

While we were gone, Stephanie rode Cibolo. I beg her to ride my horses because she's great and she loves it. Today I got an email with an interesting attachment...

Here's the report:

I found this today before I left the stable and I told Cibolo I'd get it to you. He told me not to read it, but I did anyways.



Here's the note from Cibolo:



And further explanation from Stephanie:

He was correct a little bit...It did seem to get dark right when I got there. The weather was perfect when I left for the stables, then clouds came in and it got super windy. I think the wind is what he's talking about with the monsters.

Anyway...I rode him despite the wind because I thought it would be a good training, which it really was. It took a while for me to get and -keep- his attention. He was crow hopping all over the place, snorting, side stepping...But then we got into a really nice groove and we were cantering like pros. He did really well, actually. And if we can do that when the weather is craaaaazy, we might be getting somewhere!


Thank you Stephanie, for riding through the monsters.

Cibolo, hate to tell ya, but facing monsters is just the start.

More about our trip to beautiful NM a little later. I've got to get ready to get back to reality (seriously, I KNOW I was supposed to be a trust fund baby. this work thing is just crazy).

I hate it when the rider turns your head so you have to smell their boots.

lol, what a cute letter. Cibolo, I'll bet you can't wait for Mom to ride you!! And you'll behave too, right?

So glad she got to work with him - it's always good to get that sort of perspective. I liked his letter!

Every time I take Poco to the farm, even if it's just for the day, he behaves so much better when I bring him home. "Don't leave me here!" I bet Cibolo is perfect next time you ride.
