|A horse girl's favorite combination|
This video reminds me that I am fortunate to have a thinking horse. Harley never ceases to amaze me with his versatility. When the teeter-totter was newly constructed, everyone on the farm brought their horses up to the new toy to see how each horse would react. We get really excited about those sorts of things. I must say that I have a very fun-loving barn family!
We have several level-headed trail horses, so more than one successfully "walked the plank" with little encouragement. I am proud to report that Harley was among them. After allowing me to lead him across the teeter-totter in both directions, we tried it under saddle. This was no problem at all, and I actually felt a lot more comfortable on his back. I do not want to lose a toe should I step too close to the plank from the ground. Even under saddle, I must admit that the drop of the teeter-totter does unnerve me a bit. Thankfully, Harley does not feed off of my hyper-cautiousness. After-all, he is a reformed "yahoo horse". ;)
Well then, let's go!
How about another perspective?
My husband also never ceases to surprise me. He gave me a helmet camera for my birthday, which was why we could not resist heading to the barn to try it out! Now that is my idea of excellent birthday plans. I am easy to please, as long as you disregard the super expensive pet and riding habit. My husband is so understanding.
|I love you, Honey. Thank you for a great birthday!|
