Well, you and Barry never are ones to pass up a training opportunity. So on Friday when I was out and saw the inflatable slide going up at the school next door, I knew I was in for an interesting day.

Loverboy watched casually as the generator kicked on and started sputtering. Then the slide started rising into the air like a big blue bubble. That’s when you came out and said “Let me get my camera, let’s go!”

So off we went, through the gate and out into the field. Loverboy casually walked onto the pavement, walking slightly sideways and eyeing the slide the entire time.

We stopped and watched for a minute and then I asked him if he wanted to take a closer look. He walked forward without hesitation and stood right in front of the slide! Not only did we check out the slide up close, he decided he wanted to walk around back and check out the loud, smoke-spewing generator as well.

I swear this is the bravest, most confident, amazing horse!!

Thank you for yet another opportunity to challenge my horse and demonstrate to people that thoroughbreds are an awesome breed who are not all nervous and spastic. They have so much heart and courage and desire to please and achieve. O.K., sorry, I will now get off my soapbox. As always, with so much gratitude for making this entire journey possible and introducing me to the amazing world of OTTB’s,
