The text I got was glowing Sammy (new trainer) rode both girls and they both did great. Circe’s didn’t call out to the other horses (a habit were working on to stop) and after her work in the indoor arena she was ridden around the property. That means around the pond, to the upper barn […]

Just to give an idea of the scope and scale of the new ginormous ring. Circe started off really good. Calm, relaxed ready to work when she walked across the street, into the ring and even on the lunge. That was until Jezebel started to call to her from across the street. Took Jez about […]
