This is my girl, Kate.
We actually bought her two years ago for me to ride while my mare, Elly, was pregnant. Didn't happen--we never actually got her started. We did do groundwork and built up her confidence, but we never got on her.
This last Friday we took her to a friend that starts Arabs. We've ridden with her before and seen what calm and well-behaved horses her training turns out. So now Kate is there and I'm missing her. She and I had a special deal; she'd give me a "hug" (basically allowing me to wrap both arms around her head) and then I'd scratch her belly. We'd do this repeatedly while feeding.
I hate that she's not in our pasture, but I love that I'll be riding her when she gets home.
