A great day at my house !! Indepence Day for Chick !!

Chick is now 14 months old.....been working with her on her ground work and yesterday my trainer / friend J came over to help me. Brought her driving stuff, and put the saddle on for the first time. She did so good....J even got on her for a couple of minutes and made a loop or two around the round pen. She did not even blink an eye. I am so proud of this little filly, and I can't wait til I can take her on the trail. We have just bonded like no other horse I have ever had. I hope we continue our relationship like it is going.
I am not a trainer by any means and this is my first ground up I hope I am doing her justice. Just been taking a little bit of info from everyone and doing my own thing.

Here are some pictures. Hope to keep updating her progress via my bloggie....

Have not been posting much, but I definitely have been reading everyone's blogs and just enjoy my little time in the day finding out what everyone has been up to.

thanks for stopping by my blog, drop in anytime to see what in the world I am up to. Yes, I have been to Buffalo River about 4 yrs ago. It is a wonderful place to ride as rough or as gentle as you want to go. The folks are great and I am sooooo looking forward to it! Congrats on your filly and bonding with her, I think I am finally rounding the bend with Harley after two years.
