Milton’s Autumn Plans

Now that we are up and about for Rodney [Plans], Greg has taken to working Milton in the mornings before work. However, he won’t have time on all days, and we will eventually run out of light.

Someone is gonna have to get his horse fit. That would be me. It doesn’t matter how dedicated one is on the weekend. Two days ain’t enough.

So, I have started. One day, we did our regular field walk in harness and long lines. The next day, we went into the ring to practice stopping and starting and steering. Well, for me to practice. Milton already knows how to do this in harness. I plan to alternate ring work with conditioning.

Yes, yes, riding would get him fit for driving. That was and is the plan. However, Milton is doing so well lately (Yay!) and he keeps having upcoming events that I don’t want to mess up.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
