I am now able to bounce the big red and black ball off of Rociada’s back without bothering her. She’s learning to kick it back to me, which is really fun! I rode her at a walk and trot without any problems or assistance, and she performed her turns and stops and backs like a champ. She is getting much softer and more willing under saddle.
Meanwhile, we introduced Ta-Tu and Sacha to their new herd, and Sacha has a new buddy: Hermoso, Rociada’s full brother. They get the big turnout during the day with the big herd and then return to their individual areas at night to eat and rest.
