But what was so amazing was how "in tune" the horse is. I rode Lakota, my very green North American Curly Appaloosa mare, so the two of us are learning together. I always knew Lakota was sensitive, but wow, she was reacting on just a thought. And when she was confused, her ears would swivel and she would hesitate. There was no fireworks, no attitude, no swishing tail. Thank you so much, Karen, for opening a whole new door to me!
I don't have a picture under saddle, but here is a shot of Lakota today, with a well-deserved reward.
