Riley -- a great day!

I am so thankful for my trainer, who has really brought Riley "round the corner." Last year, he had no go button, at least not for the first 20 minutes of my ride. In the last few months, he has been more forward, and today he was downright EAGER. Vive la difference....

Oh, and P.S. Remember Ri's hitchy gait that plagued us in 2012? It defied diagnosis. I think he does have "weakness" in the left hind, but he's moving great here, and has for a long time. Rein lame. It's real.


  1. Not sure about the color of your shirt with the wraps and the saddle pad :-) but it sure looks like fun to ride Riley! He looks so steady, balanced, straight and contented; I know it took a lot of work to get there but it looks effortless now.

  2. Long time lurker coming out of the woodwork to say how good the two of you are looking. He is really coming along well! I agree with the above person, he looks so steady and balanced and it really does look effortless. It has to be nice to see all of your hard work paying off!
