When the day came, I wanted reinforcements around - at least a team of two on the ground. We enlisted Maggie to help out since she has the most experience in this area and I stepped back to just take pictures.
It was pretty uneventful. Vince stood perfectly still while Madison mounted up. He walked off nicely and was a perfect gentleman! They even did a tiny bit of trotting with nothing to get excited about. They called it quit after about 10 minutes and we all celebrated a successful start.
I think it's obvious from the smile on Madison's face that she was very happy with how the first ride went!
Hugs and kisses for this big goober were in order. Now we just need to get some more weight on him so doesn't look like such a little horse under Madison's long legs.
This pair is going to be doing some great things in a couple of years!
