|Road to the Farm|
Once on the farm, we have all the space in the world to ride! Polito saddled Farah & for the first time I had both mares under saddle together! What fun to see Farah with a rider & riding Khari along side :-) When we arrived at the small pasture on the hill, it was dry enough for Polito to show me what he'd been working on with Farah. Mexican's ride differently- they like the horses head up! Oh No! Farah - did her best - as usual to accommodate those raised reins & higher hands.

Both mares seemed to enjoy the ride, Khari didn't mind a bit when we left Farah & headed home. Since Farah has been gone - Khari is as sweet as can be! Go figure! First she HAD to have company, we brought Farah home - Khari was thrilled - for about two-weeks. Then she decided to pull the "boss-mare" thing & has tried to make Farah miserable. Farah really doesn't care much for Khari now either - after all who wants a "witch with a B" for a friend?
I'm trying to assess just what my future horse plans might be. I really would like to do trail classes with Farah. Having a trainer like Mark Bolender in our state makes it tempting, too bad he's so far away... Don't know how much more endurance I really want to do... Starting to get that "been there, done that" feel when I think of continuing with the sport. Have Home On the Range on my radar again - then will see how I feel.
