Guess What We Did


Heather (MrsFuzz on the forum and in the comments section) is here ahead of the retreat helping me get ready. She’s an experienced rider, and I was eager to have the guidance and support here to take my first ride with Shortcake out on the farm.

I’ve been riding Shortcake around the barnyard, which has been getting kinda boring. It’s not what I want to do.

I want to get out on the farm–in the fields, on the trails, on the road.

And guess what I did today? I RODE SHORTCAKE ALL OVER THIS FARM! In the fields, on the trails, out on the road. And Shortcake was wonderful. I just needed the confidence boost of someone beside me to get out there. I’m so in love with this horse. (Thank you, Heather!)

P.S. And then I got that wagon painted! Pictures of that tomorrow!
