Wow Oh Wow: Part 2

amywink April 30th, 2012

So, just how could the day get any better you ask? Let me *tell* you, it can!

After the ride out and back, I took care of Ms. Dol and got myself out of my sweaty riding tights and into comfy shorts to watch Blessing impress me again, as always. Had I *known* what was about to take place, I might have chosen another color of shirt and some spray on tan for my fluorescent legs. First, Francine asked for the camera as I rode along behind as Malen drove Blessing around the dressage field.

Doesn’t she look lovely? What a gorgeous girl she is.

We stopped for photos and Francine helped get her ears forward so she looked lovely.

Then Francine said “you’re going to drive her now” WOWEEEOHWOWEEE!!!

And so, I did!!

She’s fabulously light and turns with the slightest squeeze of the rein. Her contact with the bit is very light as well but she’s still learning to carry it consistently. If she bobs her head, or snorts a fly away, she loses contact so it’s like losing steering for a few minutes. She does, however come back to the bit and pays attention. She’s going to make me a much better driver, that’s for sure, and I am very glad I know a lot more now than I did when I started driving Will. She is likely to have no patience with my ineptitude. But we did well and I loved driving her. I can’t wait until next time.

    Yay! I love That last photo with the smile on your face and the look of concentration on Blessing’s. She’s doing so well!

    YEA for you on all counts — yellow roses, spotted puppies, and lovely work with both of your redheaded equines!
