Hannah provided training and instruction for us today, during our lesson time. Really enjoyable for me, part of the lesson I was riding Bill, and I have not ridden a different horse for a few years! It was good to be able to watch Hannah riding Mara and to change up my mount. I’m thankful for my horse adventures.
Mara B and I rode the Dairy loop with Jennifer and Bella this afternoon. We saw the tell tale signs of deer “rutting” on trees. Google tells me that Bucks rub their antlers on small flexible trees to rub off the velvet that initially covers them. (Clearly damaging the tree). Other barn friends were also out riding the loop and we met up with them on the way back to the barn! The ride was my Halloween treat.
My buddy Ross, is interested in horses, and today Mara was his guide and mentor. Andri joined us and the two horses offered him an excellent horsemanship session. We interacted with the herd, groomed and grazed the horses and toured the stable grounds. Another very fun horse class. My ride out then, took us past Sams and around Julie’s new spread. Mara also had a mentoring session with the one brave cow who did not dash away as we rode past on our way home.
