The DOR came out and spent the afternoon yesterday getting a bit of horse therapy. I made sure she had a wonderful time by being on my best behavior.We played with the barrels. I usually do figure eights around two barrels...today I showed of by doing a clover leaf pattern using
three barrels. The DOR was delighted with my new ground trick.
I made sure that she got lots of horse hugs and snuggles. I even showed her how much I trust her by letting her cover my eyes and lead me around. For some reason this made her cry...I guess showing blind trust in a human really overwhelms them.
During our ride I made sure not to give her any appytude about being in the arena. I trotted and walked laterally...eat your heart out Buck! I was light and responsive and to top it all off I did not do one single imitation of a Mexican jumping bean.
Turns out with humans tears and smiles can all come at the same time, which is a good thing.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
