Starting Beretta

Well, now that I have waited until almost winter...LOL...I decided it was time to get back to working with the horses. I have been riding Moon and Frosty, so they are starting to come back and look a bit more fit again.

I decided that I might as well start working with Beretta...
Now, Beretta is as gentle as they come for her age. Megan has already been on her bareback and has ponied her from the corrals to the pasture. That's been a while ago though.

Baby girl got her first formal lesson in ponying and she was a rockstar. We went down the road and over to the field I ride in and made a few rounds. Not a single problem.

Now to start the sacking and saddling process!

Sure is nice to start them when they are already quiet and gentle. She sounds like a sweet horse.

She's a nice mare, hope she comes along well.

She looks to be saying, "let's go!" Hope she continues to do well!

Sounds like she is already off to a great start. It will be nice watching her proceed, even if from a distance.

Of course it rained today. Maybe snow tomorrow...then back to our regularly scheduled beautiful Fall weather and back to work.

Gotta have a rain day once in a while...or my house would NEVER get cleaned. LOL
