First Ride

The farrier was late last week.  We already had the horses caught.  I told J he might as well go ahead and ride while we were waiting.  
 I have ridden Brother a hand full of times this year but this was J's first time on since last fall.
 I think he was pleasantly surprised at how well Brother did.   He acted like he was ready to go to a show and win western pleasure.  One little bobble about being suborn about loping once but other than that it was 30 minutes of pleasure.   J had to ask a couple of times, "are you sure he is trotting?"
Now that he has his shoes on maybe J can work out some more times to ride.
And for her second trim, Draper was an angel again.  She acted better than some of the big horses.

Draper continues to shine. Is the trot on brother that smooth?
