I finally got all my tack together, so we went to visit Polor on Saturday. I'm so ready to bring him home!
|He wanted to ride all day.|
|Michael and I traded off with Polor. He did really well for his first time in an English saddle.|
|Blaze is 29 years old!|
|Despite some issues with the new tack, Polor was very good with Michael.|
|Gus got to ride Blaze after Austin. He fell in love too!|
|I think he's decided that maybe these horse things aren't too bad after all.|
|Isaac had a difficult morning, but wouldn't get up on a horse. He had a lot of fun petting them once he finished this melt-down session (he had to go into time-out right after this pic).|
We had a really good day. Polor was wonderful, even though it turned out he had an allergic reaction to something on his saddle pad. It took us a while to figure it out, and even though it wasn't easy, Polor behaved very well despite the difficulties. Three weeks until he comes home!
**Yes, I know I'm the only one wearing a helmet! If the boys had been on any horse other than Blaze, they would have had my helmet. We'll bring theirs next time as I've always made it a point to wear one. Michael needs to find one that will fit him. We'll plan better next time.
