I was out at the barn today.. ALONE ! Yes alone. It was heavenly. Some boarders like the social aspect of it, I however enjoy the solitude and Zen peacefulness of the quiet times.
We had a fantastic ride, a lovely set of transitions and I concentrated more on my abdomen and bee-hind as a driving technique. Sha Zam it worked!
So what is interesting about this photo? Star is never really interested in what I am doing. When I turn her out she is in her own world she hardly notices I am even there unless I LEAVE her sight, she is too busy running, bucking, looking at other horses etc...
Today was different she was happy to see me and followed me everywhere and well was actually a pest ! I tell you this because it NEVER happens.
I liked this shot of her she was looking at her mare frens, but still had an eye on me.
Star is attached to me like a newborn with the umbilical cord. She has to have me within her sight at all times. She will play in the arena and roll if I stand there, the second I step out this is what she does.
Uh.. Mom? Mom? I thought we were gonna play....
Today, I turned to leave her in there and grabbed the gate chain to " lock her in" and she took it out of my hand and held it.
She never does that either! She wanted to come with me to the bathroom?
