I can not believe the summer is over. I guess it is like every year, fast and furious. This is precisely why I haven't written in a couple months. My show season was cut short due to the need of a root canal. Being self employed has its benefits and downfalls, the latter being one that I have to pay for dental work out of pocket.
One of my new horses for the summer is Lacy. She is a Morgan mare, whom I like to compare to a sorority girl. She likes the fact that she is pretty, but doesn't want to work too hard at it. I feel like our training sessions are more of me trying to prove to her that I am worthy. I have to convince her that carrying herself properly is her idea, not mine. The give and take of working with different horses is great, I continually am improving my "conversations" with them.
