Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring! This time, while I rode Rejoice again, Margaret rode her horse Jester and had a friend ride Ladyhawke. All Kennebec Morgans!! Jester and Rejoice have the same dam and Jester and Lady share the same sire. Unfortunately instead of a lovely late spring day, we had one of the first intensely hot and humid days of the year. It was definitely a bummer, but the ride was mostly in the shade of the woods and we had a great time!  most of the fences were 3' coops but we found a small log and this hay to jump haha Until we didn't. 😑 We brought along a third friend who rode Margaret's older mare, Ladyhawke. She's a good rider but hasn't known Ladyhawke for very long and didn't realize how much of a cranky boss mare she could be at times. She kicked Jester right in the front leg just about halfway through the ride, and while the cut itself ended up not being a big deal in the

Reva Becomes a Riding Horse

Here are some pics from September. This was the last time I rode in her tiny paddock. Since then, I have ridden her in the large field where I ride Dreamy. Of course, I have no pics or videos, seeing as it is nearly impossible to get my husband to take any! This was a rare occasion! LOL!

Telling her what a GOOD GIRL she is!

Dislikes the bugs!

Clarence had been DYING to ride Reva. She is only three, at this point in these pics had only been backed three times, so of course I always said NO! Next summer, maybe!

Well, he won out. I let him sit on her while my husband helped.

Clarence was so beside himself with excitement to ride the filly! She was SO GOOD. I would NOT recommend doing this with most 3 yo fillies, but Reva is just simply a Super Horse!

With Shawn at Clarence's leg, I walked Reva around a little in her paddock. She walked on eggshells. Perfect girl!

He'll be doing Leadline with her next year! LOL! ;-) Just showing next year.

The rule here is that if you ride, you help take care of the horse. Clarence wanted to put her hoof polish on. He tells me now that he has ridden her, Reva is HIS horse. I can have Sparky and Dreamy if I want.......too funny.
