One Year In

Saturday was spring-vet day. Steen got his vaccinations, and was exceptionally well-behaved for the vet, always nice, particularly since many of the other horses at the barn are a far cry from easy to handle.

This weekend was also the one-year anniversary of my purchase of Steen. I'd say it has been a pretty satisfactory year. Last week I put a saddle on him for the first time in months and just had the nicest, mellowest ride in the indoor arena. He kept his trot slow, smooth and beautiful the whole time. He is also more and more obviously attached to me, always meeting me at the gate now while other people have to go out and wade through the muck to get their horses. One year in, I still think I made the right choice when I wrote that check and am even more excited to see where we are next time late April rolls around.

  1. Grats on your one year mark. It's always a plus when your horse behaves well for the vet. Although, I think the vets themselves have a lot to do with it.
