|As we leave Duvall~|
|Farah, Grammy & Mason|
Heading back to Duvall, Farah really started warming up - she was finally hitting her stride, maintaining & lengthening it. It's taken this second ride for her to realize that there's no more pinching, rubbing etc. from the saddle. When I think of all the miles she did last year - it's amazing that she's kept the good attitude she has when it's time to ride. I've been very lucky - notice I don't say "smart" - in that we're finally working through this one issue that every horseman knows can be a tough one. I'm so happy to be enjoying the ride & to know that my mare is finally comfortable too!
