Here I am in the classring, ready to start:
You noticed the tarpaulin on the ground? We horses tend to be frightened of such things, and it is very important to learn not to be.
Ms. A taught me how to trot around, slow to a walk, and change directions, all by voice:
Just look at the audience I had!
Mr. E was there too and watching me closely:
Towards the end of the lesson, Ms. S got out this lasso-like thing and started twirling it around me and over my head. That kind of thing is pretty frightening to us horses at first. I was a bit anxious initially...
... but I quickly understood that there was no need to worry:
Ms. S told #1 that I was really intelligent, alert and a quick learner and that even though she knows me, she was surprised at how quickly I progressed!!!
Afterwards, I got TWO carrots!!!!!
Oh, and as I am in a very generous mood today, here is a flying ears photo of Tommy for this Friday!
