KB gets after me, usually once per lesson, about something that I'm not doing in the safest manner. Of course my first response is always that Emi's not going to do anything. Now I know any horse can do anything but realistically I trust Emi quite a bit and don't expect a crazy reaction from her about things.
I lunged her for a few minutes before our lesson and when KB arrived we long lined before I climb aboard. My dad came up to watch our maiden voyage as did my friend Chantelle. They were joined by the other two members of the half-arab club, April and Melissa. It was fun to have them share in such an exciting moment.
It's amazing to look back at where we started and to see this come a full circle.
It crazy to think it all started with the dream of a girl receiving chemo to own a "Cardi baby."
To the little bay filly she met at 3 days old.
To a mostly grown up bay mare.
Pinch me...I must be dreaming. I smiled from ear to ear my whole 10 minute ride. It was amazing!
For those of you interested in the three minute version of our first ride.
