They have clicked. Rachel went to her first recognized event and jumped around everything, water, ditches, combinations etc. She understands that is is not the obstacle but the ride she gives him going into things. He is trusting her more as she is more consistent and truly a leader. All the work this year going places and getting him used to things has paid off. Yea Rachel!
Then they went to a clinic at the horse park in Cle Elem ( well worth a visit she says). They did so well the clinician moved them up a division to Novice. They were the only ones to jump the whole course cleanly. This is the division they want to show at next year so a great way to end the season.
They also have a new pony at home for the kids “Moira”. She is older and very calm and sweet.
