We have a new feature. We worked both horses in the ring at the same time: Greg, ground-driving/long-lining; me, riding. After warming up at a walk together, Rodney would park and watch Milton, then vice versa. Lather, rinse, repeat.
From a work point of view, not much happened. We milled around, did a few figures, stood.
From a mental point of view, it was a huge success. Rodney was as relaxed as he’s been outside of a dressage lesson (Rodney loves Mr. E.). He’d work quietly, then stand around yawning. For those who don’t speak horse, yawning is a release rather than a sign of boredom.
It’s good thing. I think Rodney liked the company.
Milton didn’t seem to care one way or the other.
Thank you for reading,
