Horse Play

Caught The Girls playing last weekend. Of course by the time I got the video camera out they had stopped jumping and kicking. But they were still running around a bit and playing a sort of "catch" game....

John Rides Bareback on Zora

We finally got the last of our round pen panels so we can do some ground work with The Girls. Zora has always been a challenge -- she is way hot, and in a perfect world would be ridden every day. We are hoping some time in the round pen will help take some of the fire out of her.
John has always wanted to ride her bareback.
So here was his chance. I was nervous about it, because she is such a psycho. But he did really good on her. I think she has made him a really good rider.
Check it out...... (Warning -- It may make you a little motion sick, especially at the beginning. I was on Divna bareback while I was taking this. It took me a bit to get the hang of it)

I have a better video that I wanted to use, but for some reason it will not upload (?). That really bugs me because it was so much better. Zora was crow-hopping in that one, and John stayed on her! That video did upload to my Facebook page, so you can check it out there. I have a Facebook badge on my blog (bottom right) that will direct you there.
