Riding Daisy, Driving Freedom, and Giving The Horses Baths

Our family had a good time in OH at the tractor show. I will write more about that later when I get the pictures done. Right now I am doing the pictures from the wedding. Really having fun with them. Later this week I am going to be doing pictures of one of Anthony and Lori's girls. Anyway now for what I have been doing with the horses!

Yesterday after we got home from OH with the family I loved on the horses and rode Daisy bridleless around the meadow a bit..that was a lot of fun!
Today I rode Daisy in the snaffle bit. I was getting her to move her hindquarters and forquarters both left and right. She did amazingly well. I also got her to back up, using very light hands on the reins. She has done so well with backing up. Alyson was at the barn so I got her to watch me ride Daisy at a trot and so she laid out two poles so I could trot over them. I plan to work Daisy with that more. After I was done with riding Daisy, I unsaddled her and then gave her a bath. After her bath I tied her out.
I got Freedom and drove him. He did so great. I was pleased with how well he drove. We drove the whole way out to the end of the driveway. Once we were done driving I gave him a bath too. I had quite the enjoyable evening with the horses!! Plan to ride again tomorrow evening!
