Went to see Tesla yesterday afternoon, to see how she was settling in, and if she was calm, walk her around the arena - and if she was very calm, maybe some walk trot work.
|Forgot my camera...so no photos of the new digs yet!|
Tesla was totally relaxed, so I gave her a good currying, and tacked her up (Western Saddle and English Bridle, cause that's how we roll sometimes).
The Balance ride isn't much saddle (seriously, it is an english saddle with a horn!) but I sit nice and secure in it, so we will definitely be bouncing between it and my Kieffer for now...
It was so tranquil...little kiddos were playing and giggling off in the distance, and all the neighbors waved at us as they drove by at a crawl - so sweet! and Tesla gave me some lovely turn on the forehand work.
I'm delighted to have found the perfect fit for both Tesla and I.
