Since I’ve gotten home, life has been gloriously normal with one exception…the weather! We’ve gotten some winter weather here in the Valley, and it was too gorgeous not to have a little photo session with The Best Friend.
You can check out the rest of the photos on my Facebook page.
Gibbs is also progressing fabulously, thanks to some new training advice from The Best Friend’s mentor in Portugal. We’ve advanced to working on lightness and suppling with some new exercises, and if he continues on the path he’s on, it won’t be long before he’s completely going in the snaffle. That is a major accomplishment for him, especially considering I’ve only had him for about seven months.
We have big plans for him coming up, including lots of trail riding once the weather gets nice and a few clinics that we’re hoping will get us ready for next year’s show season. Hopefully soon I’ll find a way to get some pictures of us!
