Thought I'd visit Ashes
Ashes sure is pretty. It's the perfect name for her. In response to what you said yesterday (I'm pretty sure I haven't written back yet), I'm now think you're right. I never thought about how many people really don't work with their horses - or even seem them - every day. I'm lucky; my horses live in a field right behind my house. I get to see them every day, and spend time with them. So, I would work with Casper often. I ride at least 3 x per week, unless I'm not home. And even if I don't ride, I sometimes get him out and groom him (not every day, mind you - I'm a horrible horse owner, right?). We rode today. He wouldn't pick up his hoof while I was picking his feet, and I was so frustrated I had to leave the yard for a minute. When I came back, I tried and tried before I finally jerked it up and picked it in a hurry. Then I gave him a carrot. Bad owner, right? But whenever I rode him, he did better. Whenever he rode the trails with his previous owner, he was always with other horses. I guess Casper is a follower, not a leader. I think (and I hope I'm not just being naive) that I could take him back on the trails (I rode him back a couple hundred feet today) and be able to handle him okay. Why I want to Parelli: I want me to be his leader, for him to trust me and be okay with going back on the trails alone. That is why I want to do Parelli. Well, I write really long blogs. Oops. Well, bye. Leaving a vote for Ashes
