A friend has been giving Carus riding lessons and another friend is allowing her to ride her horse, Scout.
Scout is such a sweet horse! We love him. Carus was exclaiming the other day "my horse!" when I tried to pet him. She halters him and leads him into the arena. Then she brushes him and cleans his hooves and helps with saddling and putting the bridle on.
She is doing really well. This week she was released from the lead and had to do some exercises where she would stop Scout with his front legs as close to the orange cone as she could - and she did really well with it stopping him at just the right moment several times.
And it hasn't taken Scout long to figure out that time with Carus means cookies.
I am so thankful for
good GREAT friends!
