I bought Poco about six weeks ago. He was supposed to be my "at home horse" to replace Cisco, who I lost to Colic in January. I had plans for Poco. My family/friends would ride him while I rode Champ. I could see us riding out under the sunset.
But four weeks ago we suddenly lost Champ. Poco is now my main guy. I call him my "Glass Horse" because he is the only horse I now have to ride.
Poco has yet to surprise me. He's well behaved, yet I can still see small positive changes in his behavior each time I go through my ground work exercises with him and establish myself as the leader.
Finishing up ground work:
We move to the indoor arena where my friend Haley is riding. It's also cooler in here:
Hailey and I (Western and Dressage)!
I tell Poco (Poke) that there's a secret waiting for him in his stall.
And give him a big hug for such a great ride!
Good Boy, Poco! Ok, let's go get those carrots!!!!
