Familiar Ground

My daughters were pretty much spent. The horses were ready to return to more familiar surroundings. Returning home, after being away for three weeks, came at the right time. A week to relax. A week to have fun. The horses pretty much know the training and riding schedule is winding down to the off-season level.

In a couple of weeks, they’ll meet with their riding coach, Mark, and chart out the off-season training schedule and regime.
