Here is a photo of my mom on her Thoroughbred, Tam. I love this picture of her - although in today's world there would be many "tsk, tsks" because she doesn't have a helmet. Oh well, it is still a great photo with the white sunglasses and his tail swishing. She and I rode Sovey and Pie on Tuesday morning. Tacking up was a disaster and I wasn't too sure we were going to actually get to ride. I like to have calm grooming and tacking time to ensure a safe, happy ride. Both horses were so antsy and not cooperating in the cross-ties. Sovey is slender and his proper saddle adjustment takes a long time. Pie is young and has a very tiny attention span. Together it was like a three-ring circus! Mom and I just walked them around outside without mounting and let them calm down a little. Then, we got on and had a fabulous ride. I even asked Pie to trot! We had to catch up to Sovey at one point and the Pie-Pie was wonderful. I posted and he trotted right up beside Sovey like he does this all the time. Pie and Sovey make our days so special!
