Riley and Rociada out in the world

Kim played with Riley this morning, and Riley got all four feet on the pedestal for the first time at liberty:

Then Kim took Riley out of the arena for her first trail ride, following Rociada and I around the ranch, as relaxed and engaged as any trail pro. It was also Rociada’s first ride outside the arena and only her second time being ridden with the carrot stick. She has come so far!

Ta-Tu and Sacha left this morning to head home to Idaho. Both loaded easily into the trailer after taking a good look at it and a moment of approach and retreat. They were so good, the hauler probably couldn’t even believe they are the same horses he brought down just two months ago.
