Horsing around

Lilie spent most of last week riding Coco...
and Thunder.
Yesterday, we decided to mix it up a little.
Longtime readers will remember my sweet Quarter Horse buddy, Chino
This was one of my regular rides a few years back. He left Kenlyn in 2016, but returned to his original owner last year. She graciously offered to let me borrow him for Lilie, and it made my heart so happy to have him out on the trail with me again.
He was absolutely perfect for Lilie on the first half of the ride.
Then he got hungry, and I had some flashbacks to the infamous ride when all he did was eat.
That was a little frustrating for all involved, but on the whole, I think this ride was a success.
Today, she rode Coco in the ring.
After she was done, Sarah asked her if she would like to ride Olympia.
 Of course she said yes.
Then Sarah called her into the ring and asked her if she would like to canter. Lilie was a little nervous, but she decided to give it a shot.
Look at them go!
Happy smiles all around!
This has been such a fun week! I don't know if I'm really going to return Lilie to her parents on Tuesday. I think I might just keep her instead!
