All Three

My mom is in town for a visit. Since Brian got the 4th of July off, we headed for the barn first thing in the morning with the intention of riding all three of our horses simultaneously for the first time.

We rode in the tree pasture, both to take advantage of the shade and because the trees make the riding a little more dynamic. I rode Steen in the hackamore, Mom rode Bear, and Brian was aboard Laredo.

Mom and I mostly rode around the perimeter of the lot, chatting and not doing anything demanding. She had a great time with Bear. He was quite polite with her, happy to walk with me and Steen or stand in the shade. We did a little bit of trotting together too.

She took a little break while I worked on some focused stuff with Steen for a short period. Steen was great, again feeling more relaxed and attentive to the hackamore than he has to the snaffle lately. We did a quick round of all our exercises, including loping some nice circles. Brian had a good time on Laredo too.

Unfortunately it was logistically impossible to get a shot of all three of us mounted together, but Brian got this pretty cute one of my mom and me on Bear and Steen.
