24th June, 2009 Whoops! Forgot

There are some things that shouldn't go together and a novice rider, ex-racehorse and a Western saddle probably count. On the other hand, if we can keep Chancer as happy and chilled as he is now and David the same, it could just work. Chancer has been out in his saddle four times now and seems very happy in it. He stands quietly next to the mounting block while I lug it up the steps and place it on his back - how did those cowboys carry those things around?

What we call our "manege a trois" with Julie, David and me all involved in the training of this little horse, is going pretty well.
