Free Stanley!

Horses: This is what happens when you decide it's too rainy and muddy for your horse to go outside to play and decide to be nice and let him have "free play" in the indoor arena.

First he just trots off not too sure why he's "loose".
Then he gives you a big "Yeeehaw"!!!! (Doesn't it look like he's going to fall right on his face?)
Next he feels his oats. (yes, that's me back there making sure he doesn't decide to be really stupid and jump those ropes or something)
Then you see some flat out speed work.
Both directions. Wouldn't want to only work one side.
And then when he is done he goes to stand by the giant mounting block and wait for his humans to get his saddle and bridle.

Wow, that is a high buck! He's havin' so much fun! I love watching them free play! It's amazing the moves they have, eh?
I like that you stood by the ropes, I'd take that precaution, too. Horses can get so wacky when they are wired and running!
