She was wide eyed but pretty well behaved. She touched noses with a couple horses, and was petted by some friends. Alyssa commented that she did not baby mouth when meeting her mare...and she didn't. She hardly ever did it with Roz either. I'm not sure what that means, but it's interesting.
I moved her out of the barn aisle so someone could get through, and Tarra was bringing Roz out of the arena. I had been impressed that there hadn't been any whinnying between the two of them....but I thought that too soon. As soon as they saw each other they started crying. Tarra tacked Roz up for me and we headed over to the arena for some fun.
I let Emi go and hopped on Roz. She cruised around, checking out the arena, while I rode. I pretty much only walked Roz, as he was pretty worked up. We tried trotting twice, but as soon as Emi ran by, he was ready to explode. What I really wanted to do was stick him on the lunge line for a bit, but I didn't have that chance. We were joined in the arena by Alyssa and Tarra, so I caught Emi and was walking around with both her and Roz.

I then traded Roz to April, and practiced trotting in hand with Emi. We hadn't ever done that before, and we need to practice if we want to do sporthorse in hand next year. She was pretty easy and didn't try anything naughty while trotting with me. Before calling it a day, I handed her back to Tarra for a little bit more ponying time. She was awesome! She totally understood what to do and ponied really well. Such a smart girl! We then hung out and chatted for a while before loading up to go home.
