In the spirit of Missy and Mare, I headed to the barn Sunday morning with a santa hat and Moon's new stocking in hand. Only to discover my horse is impossible to pose and I hadn't enough time to try and get good photos if I wanted to ride him too. And I REALLY wanted to ride!
So I wound up with the one above picture. I'll need to get one of that stocking...I made a little "Moon-face" on it that looks just like him! And now it's hanging outside his stall, waiting for Santa Hooves to come visit.
The BF caught me last night staring, over and over again, at the below two pictures. I think I'm just soo proud of how Moon's progressing that I can't help but stare! The top pic was from April, the bottom, from this weekend. Look at the shiny pony! (who's not impressed with my photography...). Anyone see the little stocking hanging??
Our ride was short but wonderful. 25 minutes of walk-trotting, he did tons of transitions and just went great. I'm falling in love with sitting trot, it just improves your communication tenfold. For those of you that said you canter bareback, I dream of becoming you! Perhaps by spring?? And for those that commented on your TB's high wither...have a look at Moon's! Ouch.
Hopefully everyone else is well on their way on their Holiday prep. I finished the last of my stall signs due for the holidays, and have a pretty one to show everyone...Tomorrow!
