It's a drag

The outdoor arena has been in desperate need of dragging, so yesterday, JoAnna harnessed up Ernie and got to work.

This isn't something you see every day, so I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures.
Then JoAnna asked if I would like a driving lesson. I tossed the camera at Teresa, dove under the rail and picked up the lines.
JoAnna went over the basics. Then she told Ernie to, "Walk on!"
He did!
We went around the arena several times.
This was harder than I thought it would be.
Ernie is surprisingly responsive to even the lightest aids.
Because of that, I had trouble steering a straight course.
Regrouping.
Better.
Starting to get the hang of it.
If you didn't know better, it almost looks like I know what I'm doing.
This was so much fun.
Thank you, JoAnna and Ernie.
And thank you, Teresa, for all those great photos!

  1. That looks like great fun. We have a rescue mini we hope to train to drive one day.
