Winter Weather Really Interferes With My Training Plans!
The last time I rode was three weeks ago. The last time I rode Tercel was four weeks ago, though Debbie did ride him three weeks ago. Today was the first day I could ride in weeks, Debbie’s ring was not too wet, it was above freezing, and it was only misting this morning. A good day to ride!
When we got out to the barn Debbie had not yet turned out Mia, just in case I felt like I needed to ride her since I had been out…Continue

Wednesday was a nice sunny day, and more importantly for a quiet ride on Tercel, there was no wind. When I got to the stable Debbie asked if I wanted to ride her wild man, I shrugged and said “Sure!” So she went out to get Tercel while I brushed off the saddle pad and girth. Several minutes later she came in riding him bareback with the lead rope tied make reins with the tale of how Tercel had moved to the remotest part of the paddock when he saw her, instead of coming…Continue

Tercel Shows Both Sides of His Personality This Week
It was cold on Wednesday morning, so cold that Debbie called me up to make sure I was coming. It was down to 25° F, and a light breeze was blowing.

She told me to come on out.

I Had a Much More Exciting Ride on Tercel This Week
Let me put it this way, I do not think I will have to “train” Tercel to elevate his forehand.
Nothing bad happened, I had a good ride. But when I got to the stable Debbie was upset from seeing a medical treatment of her mother-in-law. Fortunately the lady recovered, but she is very old and frail. Debbie’s husband, as is proper, is at his mother’s side and everyone else has more work mucking, feeding, watering, and…Continue

I am Finally Riding Debbie’s Horse Tercel!
First the not so good news. Mick’s owner changed stables and took Mick with her, so I am no longer riding Mick.
This week I started riding Debbie’s horse Tercel, a dark bay or brown Arab gelding, I think he is in his low teens. Debbie got this horse a few months after I started riding Mia (around seven years ago), and I’ve been wanting to ride him ever since. Debbie got him to be HER horse, she had trained him to saddle but his…Continue
