Today I started by cleaning and oiling the crupper (the bit that goes under the horse's tail). And filling in a hole that the dogs dug in the pasture that was just the right size to break a horse's leg. Here we are in the pasture: Kasper's helping me bring CJ in.
Here we're setting off on a ground drive around the fields where I plan to drive the sleigh. I haven't had CJ out riding on his own for a long time so I thought I should make sure he was fine to go off without his buddies.
Kasper wants to see where I'm taking his buddy.
Into the woods...
CJ did really well. I did okay with the reins, but I definitely need more practice because some of the time we were doing a lot of zigzagging!
