Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Do you remember how last week, I said that I had watched Vidock at work, and that I was told that my turn would come? Well, guess what? It came a lot sooner than I thought. I too went back to school. I had not had any lessons since June of last year, and I remembered everything I had been taught. In fact, Ms. C said that I was an excellent student!!!

I wasn't frightened of the big puddles of water, or anything!

#1 told me she was very proud of me!

Vidock: Studly Neighs! I have been continuing my  lessons and I am doing really well. In fact, #1 has been admiring the beauty of my gait in the various photos she took! I have had a couple of lessons since I last wrote about my schooling. Here I am, training with a surcingle and long reins:

Next time around, it was just lunging:

See how beautifully I pick up my feet?

And extend on the trot?

It's fun to go to school, and we both got lots of apples and carrots afterwards!


  1. We hope you get lots of carrots for all your work in the cold muddy water.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. guys sure work hard but the rewards are many - like carrots and admiration. We hope you get millions of those.

  3. Very well done to both of you! We love the photos! Great work!

    take care
    Clive & Murray

  4. I don't know a thing about training horses but I'm sure #1 is right... you're both geniuses... and gorgeous!
