Yipee! Friend Jan can resume her riding in August. That means vacation is over for her beautiful horse Elvis. Jan has been lunging him a bit, and today I got on him. First Jan gave him a quick lunge, then she gave us both a quick lunge, and then she turned us loose. Elvis had not been ridden since the middle of March, and I had never ridden him, so the day's objective was just to have a soft and relaxed little ride. Yay! What a good boy. He was relaxed and rhythmic, and completely tuned in to his rider. Jan and I are happy campers.
