Mad Hatter Eventing
Oh what a day! It all started quite nicely this morning with a hack followed by an hour or two of teaching. Mo Mo was a saint as always. One of my students is a beginner rider who has had a few bad experiences with her horse so she decided to try riding one of my guys. Mo-mo is my 5 year old OTTB gelding; despite my promising he would behave she was still concerned that he was going to race off into never never land with her on his back. Luckily for Becca it was quite hard to encourage mo-mo that he really did want to work and not stand around getting loved on. Anyhoo, we left to run errands for a bit. On our trip home there was an unusual amount of traffic. Naturally Thomas and I started joking that it was probably a cow or Piper (my escape pony) directing traffic. Lo and behold as we pull into the farm our two welsh pony weanlings are grazing in the front yard. Apparently they are practicing their jumping skills for when there older. They jumped over a 4' fence in order to get to the grass on the otherside. Face palm.... Did I mention that they are only 11.2 - 12 hh?
