Cashlen went to her weekly riding lesson this week, although I do have to admit that it was a little bittersweet for this Momma! This is the place that took her on as a 2 year old when the youngest they usually take is a 5 year old. This is the place she rode a big horse for the first time, where she learned to feed properly and now does it alone, where she learned all the names of the tack and horse equipment, where she fell in love with this beautiful white horse named Teague.
Her instructor is moving on to somewhere else and he is the only reason we have been there, he is amazing with her and I do wish him the best. I felt sorry for the horse on Wednesday, he looked at me strange (maybe it's just me?) and put his head down on me. I want to take him with us, do you think they would just give us this horse and what would we do with it?!!! Just kidding, we don't need a horse when we can drive to one once a week, but someday maybe it would be nice!
The battle of brown vs white.....you know from previous posts that Ms Cash is in love with big giant white horses, the new place rides beginners on a horse named Bourban (I think thats the name, and again she will be the youngest rider that they take on as well, my girl must have a way with people!) and she told the lady that she needed a big white horse. Well the lady told her that they do not have a white horse for her to ride and after 3 times of going back and forth Cashlen agreed to ride a brown horse. That day she left crying since she did not ride, it was just a visit and I hope the switch goes well. She gets to go to Teague one more time.
Loves feeding those carrots!
The new place and I talked about the way she would be taught and how she was learning where she is now. Now she is doing lead line while he talks to her about the names of stuff, how her back, head, knees and feet should be, where her eyes should look, put one hand on your head, etc. This lady said she would do her on lunge line and do similar stuff. So I hope she loves the new horse and instructor just as much.
But after next week, we will surely miss this guy.
