Horsing Around

Curly got to ride with reins today! She rode Tawney, who is a lovely, well-trained bay. 



Brittany, Curly's teacher (who is wonderful, by the way) calls this Tawney's "grumpy summer work face."


They also did some long-line work, and Curly learned to balance even when Tawney stopped or turned suddenly. 



They did a little hill work. 


Tawney showed her opinion about carrying a beginner on a hot day. 


But Curly had a ball.

(Note: We were given the option to wear a helmet, and chose not to. Brittany's horses are gentle, and well-trained, and people have been riding horses for thousand of years without helmets.)
