Morgan, on Zip, riding with trainer Mike Trader. Pics taken before last night’s trail ride. Morgan is still working on remembering to forget to neck rein. She trained in Western riding for years. Zip has been trained in English reining. Morgan remembers, then goes into auto reining, and tries to neck rein her. Every time she tries to neck rein her, Zip says–
“I don’t know what you want, honey,” and she either comes to a dead stop or turns in the wrong direction. Which, I have to admit, I find not so secretly amusing since I never learned any of that neck reining stuff so my horse always goes in the right direction. (Zip is COMING HOME this week!!!)
Other current obsession:
Soap. Pictured: a lightly scrubby but nourishing apple-oatmeal bar. If I’m going to keep obsessively making soap, I think I’m going to have to start selling it.
Or get a whole lot dirtier.Permalink
