What a Great Day for a Ride

What a beautiful day for a ride. Morning temperature was pleasantly cool. The air sparkled the way it does in the Fall. After all the rainy weather of the last few weeks, an amazingly beautiful day. Shiloh started the day off looking more like a Western Pleasure horse than an English horse. We evidently found his tranquility point yesterday. We had a good ride Thursday evening. Today was even better. He feels wonderful at all gaits and is being very responsive to the seat. We're both able to go longer as we progress. Yea! With luck, maybe we'll be able to ride in the next schooling show.

Looking forward to hearing how the 4H show at the Fair went today. I was tied up at an Appaloosa club meeting and didn't make it in to see the kids show. Hope everyone had a good time!!
