At the barn this afternoon, I was greeted by a black horse in a big ol' saddle.
Miss Pixie had a long afternoon of training that involved getting used to the saddle and weight on top. Both Farmer Ted and Horse Whisperer Paulette got in the seat and took a stroll (a definite WALK) around the indoor arena. Pixie also met The Boss, a life size, weighted dummy that sits in the saddle. She walked, trotted and cantered with The Boss.
And she did a great job! Doesn't she look beautiful in that saddle? Head down, soft eyes, a true black beauty!
