Riley's birthday was Sunday -- he turned 9! I hope to have new photo or video shortly, but I never tire of his baby pix.
I don't post much about Riley lately, but he is doing great. Showing is not in the immediate future, for numerous reasons that have nothing to do with my horse life -- suffice to say that it's been a tough year in a lot of ways.
Would we be ready to show if I could? Well, no, although we aren't that far off. In order to ride Ri properly I'm relearning to ride. When I'm correct, he is beyond awesome, but he does require me to be correct in a way that Harv never did. God love Harv. Ri is making me tow the line. I am happy with Riley, and happy with our progress. It is slow but real.
