I won gold!!!!

The DOR was so pleased with me at the summer games that she is giving me a medal.  I have to say she is a more confident DOR and that made things nicer for me.  I also have to admit, while I poked fun at all her new gee gaws for the clinic, my new bit if the bomb!  It doesn't poke or pinch me and I like the roller on it. 
I was a rock star for the ground work.  In the obstacle course in-hand nothing bothered me...okay the car wash was a problem.  The DOR decided that she would walk beside me through it and I walked slowly an calmly, I even stopped with her in the middle of it.  I have discovered that she will never ask me to do something she wouldn't do herself or that she thinks in dangerous.
I was a good boy in the arena...I get bored in the arena.  I lead all of the horses out of the arena and out for riding tour of the obstacle course.  Then I tackled the obstacles...I completed things I have never done before.  I moved flags, before I wouldn't even let the DOR pick them up.  I played soccer, before I didn't like the ball coming at me.  In fact I love soccer now!  I was pushing the ball with my nose, side passing in the open to get the ball, and I made goooooooooals.
I showed the DOR that I can almost run backwards when it came to pulling the cow model.  I even pulled it with a young man sitting on the cow...I am sooo strong.
It was a great day for all of us.  Good friends, great successes, and lots of laughs.
The DOR is headed to Sun Mountain Riding Stables for a few days.  She is going up for some more rehab...she works on her confidence and bravery there. I am looking forward to see how far she progresses.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

A BIG congratulations to both of you. You both worked hard and deserved the award. Just shows you how having a DOR who is willing to go the extra mile makes a difference in life. She is a star too but you together are a fantastic team.
