Wonderful Horsey Weekend!!!

Mac was brilliant these past four days. He is calming and leading the trails. He is becoming quite confident and sure footed! I am so proud of my big boy! I think he really enjoys solo rides so he can chase turkeys and deer and keep all the apples to himself :)
The bugs were virtually nonexistent at Lake Le-Aqua-Na this week and the weather was perfect! We could not believe the crowds Friday night through Sunday afternoon. Horse trailers and campers were practically parked on top of each other. Mac acted like a champ! He had this, "been there done that' attitude most of the time. And of course he had never; this was the most number of horses, kids on bikes, dogs running lose (so unsafe), and noise I think we have been riding around for fun thus far. HE WAS PERFECT!!!! BEST HORSE EVER!!! :) Just goes to show you what a lot of work and time result in :).

Summer coming to an end.

Koda has been doing very well with his groundwork. Mac is still a bugger. He can be pushy and disrespectful, but of course, he will take more time as he is little bit older and more set in his ways. I think they are both making great progress.
Unfortunately, I return to University on Sept. 6th so, for the most part, I will only be able to work with them on the weekends. As long as I suck it up and work during the cold winter Koda will be ready to ride in the spring and Mac will be extremely safe for anybody to ride.
That is my ultimate goal!
