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.)
