But the blessed mare framed up and tolerated my legs being too far forward and posting on the wrong diagonal more often than not and even losing my stirrups a few times.
She really has become an awesome "almost anyone can ride" kind of horse.
But when the riding is done, nothing makes her happier than heading back to her paddock to much hay in the sunset.
A few days later, Madison took her on a ride down the road and snapped this pretty picture with the changing leaves. Beautiful!
