Things are getting exciting here on the homestead. But ALAS! I am not to breath a word of it, yet. And it is hard not to tell it, but things are not quiet ready for the telling.
My middle child rode bareback for the first time yesterday. My husband had hid the camera from our youngest son, and I couldn't find it to take photos. But I have it now. Today he will be riding with a saddle. Yesterday he also learned how to get on and off a horse, getting it to walk, and stop. He also learn to use hand signals for back up your in my space, and which direction you want the horse to go in while standing in front of him. They showed him how to get the horse to jump over barrels and bow, the last two they have been training the horse to do and were just showing off for my son.
Today he will be on a saddle, learning the basics of saddle riding. Yesterday was just to get him use to being on such a large horse. Not sure why they choose the youngest and biggest horse they have, but they know what they are doing.
No, I can't tell you.
