I was very pleased with how calm she was. She was eager to go for a ride, but content to just walk. After awhile, I got up the courage to trot a little. Smoke wanted to go faster, but still kept to my pace. Even when we were going toward home, she was slow...actually slowed down sometimes, very unusual for her. She responded perfectly to my rein and leg cues. We came upon the sheep grazing and had a little fun moving them around.
In the picture on the right of her with the reins on her neck, she was walking along as I was taking the picture. Before the accident, I would not have been able to let go of the reins like that so we have made some progress!
The last picture is Seth's new hunting blind Grandpa helped him build.
