Game ON!

Great Game - First Ride!

…..I am trying to collect a few good video clips of Patrick and Shu…..he is riding her soft and forward…round and elastic wayyyyyy beyond 6 1/2 months of lessons on a OTTB that is well shy of 4 herself….they are jelling completely….makes me jealous ….they are working together as well as she and I did….AND…..:))…my horse has actually taught HIS horse something!!!!! We went out today and his horse had wayyyyyy more crusted mud and dirt on her than the entire time she has been with us combined…..lol…you should have seen the look on his face when he saw her and started to try and clean her up to ride…..she was way dirtier than even my horse….I died laughing. Also….we got Patrick fully mounted on Game today and led her around….she was a bit nervous walking with him first draped across the saddle…so after a couple of times and her settling ….I had him slip his leg over and just stay laying forward draped over her withers so he could slide sideways off if she got goofy…but she didn’t ….she was my girl….the worst of the whole process was after it was all over…her rubbing her head…you know she has a head the size and weight of an eight year old child???? When that thing butts you or “vigorously” rubs….well…let me just say have competed in karate tournaments against other black belts and taken less of a beating ….lol….and yes I know even before you say it…baddddd habit….but just at the beginning she was so pleased with herself and looking for praise…and after all….she did leave him up without killing him….what’s a guy supposed to do? Anyway …yes….will definitely get pics of Carrie on Shu…and send some of Patrick too …..now that I am grounded from riding her isn’t a lot left to do other than clap and take pics..lol…talk to you later…..Chuck
