Unfortunately I was destined to forget something and didn’t bring my vests for schooling. Beka to the rescue again!
I started off the schooling adventure by WTC around and letting Annie see everything. She was a super star like usual and didn’t even bat an eye at the new surroundings. I was even more surprised given the fact that she was a lone ranger our there. Schooling small logs was a great start. Initially Annie didn’t want to get into the water. It would have been way easier if I had a guide horse but I am really happy that we were able to work out her not wanting to get in.
Going up was no problem for Nanners and before I knew it she was flying up and off the banks like an old pro.
Once we schooled most of the fences that were of reasonable height we strung a few things together. Annie dominated all of the things and is seriously coming into her own.
Please embrace Beka’s mad documentation skills below where you can see quality video and hear her camera going wild in the background!
Last but not least how Annie and I ended up swimming with an alligator… Becuase we were going to the beach the next day I thought it wouldn’t hurt to have Annie walk a few steps into the lake/pond on the way back… Apparently I asked for one step too many because one second we were happily in shallow water and the next we were both swimming. After recovering from the shock of it I couldn’t help but laugh!
