Friend Day

E's friend Ashton was over today and wanted to go riding.  Her last experience here had been on Hank the Wonder Horse so she wanted to try something a little less bouncy.  
 So of course E picked out Pep.
 After a little lounging Pep joined up with Ashton.
 A little help from the bucket never hurts.
 Not having ridden much before Ashton wanted to be led first.
 She quickly graduated to circles in the round pen and the walk, jog and lope.
 They decided to ride outside.  I suggested ponying Pep with Hank.  E practiced first because she had never ponied before.
 One loop around the barn,
and I turned them loose.  I think everyone had a good time.  Maybe we can get Ashton to show in a beginner class at our next show.
