Old Friends

Will had a visit yesterday from his old friend, Galaxy. They were pastured together at Haven Hill for some time and he was thrilled to see her again. Galaxy is Mary’s Welsh Cob mare and also the first horse I ever drove when I took the Beginning Driver’s Clinic at Haven Hill back in May 2007. That was a lifetime of learning ago!

Mary brought Galaxy up from her place to get her used to the idea of driving with us. Galaxy was not all together sure that was a good idea but she was happy to see Will and there was much calling and chatting with each other. Will pranced up and down the fenceline while Mary walked her around to get her used to the dressage arena. We later ground drove her a bit before just letting her get the hang of the place in Windy’s stall while we drove Will–who was very good. We had a lovely relaxed drive and Will seemed to enjoy himself a great deal.
