Yesterday was Penny's 9th Birthday! She is such a young girl to have accomplished so much. To celebrate, Nicole and I went for a little ride around the property. We had a few warm days and some good melting, but then it froze over night. It warmed up a bit again but the footing in the ring was a little hard still so we ventured off for a ride down the driveway.
Penny has been absolutely fabulous since she is back into work. She feels so much happier and like a whole new horse. I think removing that tooth has made a world of difference. She is happily accepting the bridle and relaxing - which was basically mission impossible before. Maybe she just likes her fancy new bridle from Perfect Sit of Sweden. Who can blame her, they are just that nice!

Oliver continues to be the easiest horse I have ever started. Meaning, I have ridden him once, and Nicole has ridden him a few times. He just trucks along like he has been doing it his whole life. He is starting to understand the concept of leg and doing walk-halt transitions. Nicole does such a great job just staying quiet and letting him figure things out. She is a really talented young rider.
So Happy Birthday Penny, I love you SO much! Looking forward to many more Birthdays together. Also a Happy Birthday to my husband Jesse. Still makes me laugh they share a Birthday.
