Practicing Crossties

I went to the barn for a Memorial Day hack (sorry Texas) and the barn was completely quiet. Ellie and I took the opportunity to "practice crossties" for tacking up and took our first trip around the indoor ring.

It was lovely.

I feel like the extra time outside in her run, the large turnouts, and having buds within biting distance has really quieted her mind. While I was expecting crazy mare during our cloudy, windy weekend- I ended up with a gal that, despite trantering, was happy to hang out with me and have a couple of low key "firsts" at the new place.

  1. I feel like Henry misses other horse touches since he's been in the barn too! So I make sure to turn him out a couple times a week :)
