Wednesday Whinnies With Heloise

Heloise: Youthful Neighs, Everyone! I hope you are all having a good week. It is pretty hot here. I am glad we have some shade in our field!

Remember how I had told you that I would be going to school? Well, I have started!

This thing on my back is called a surcingle.

And then, Ms. C put on the bridle:

She attached a lunging rein, and off we went!

So, what do I do now, Ms. C?

 We went around in circles, in both directions:

And she made me do a little obstacle course:

And then came the really scary part! She wanted me to go over that thing!!!

Let me tell you, it took a lot of coaxing! She showed it to me up close.

And finally, I took the plunge!

Let me tell, I didn't dawdle!


But after I had been over it a few times, she put some apple pieces in the middle of it, and I liked it a lot better!

School is really hard work! My Mama was neighing encouragement from nearby. She has never been to school and told me how lucky I was to have this opportunity. I guess she's right...


  1. oooh that looks great!!!! we go to a school too, we hope we will like it as much as you...

  2. I wonder if school for you is anything like my training sessions! Yours look harder.
