Early Days

Trial

Love these ears

Last weekend I finally had the confidence to ride Hemie by myself without trainer supervision. I had a barn friend around and wore all my safety gear, just in case. But it went perfectly. I spent the rides focusing on my position and just having fun, and Hemie felt relaxed and happy. It was really great to be on his back again.

Then on Monday, he left for a trial period. This was the opportunity that was too timely to ignore – a potential new partnership with a more advanced rider better equipped to handle his challenges and help him reach his fullest potential. I’ve only gotten a brief update that so far its going well. There isn’t a specific time-frame for the trial, so we’ll just see how it pans out. I look forward to hearing more back soon.

Loading him on the trailer was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I guess I wasn’t really ready for it. I miss him so much. Part of me wants it to work out with the new rider, but part of me just wants him back.

  13. It's so incredibly brave of you to take this big step, but you will be a better rider/horse-owner because of it. He will succeed and so will you. Good luck with whatever the roads ahead has in store for you, I know it's going to be great!
