Back to Phoenix! I just can not believe that I found this horse. He had his third real ride today and is just doing amazing...I can not believe how fast he is learning. He is already beginning to supple and loosen his back, and he even cantered and did some ground poles! Big steps for a third ride! I am so excited for what his movement is going to be like under saddle once he loosens more. I've seen his pasture trot! Wowww!! He is just so smart though. Every ride he is improving a lot! As horrible of a card that we were recently dealt, I am blessed to have this horse right now. He is everything that I look for in an upper level horse, and with the kindness of Scooby. I truly believe that Scooby is with him..How else can he be learning so quickly? Scooby knows that we have Horse Trials to get ready for =) Which by the way, make sure to check out the video clip of me leading him over logs out in the yard. I know, not the safest thing, but I could not resist!
Phoenix's First Time Over Ground Poles/ Third Ride

Phoenix's First Cross Country Fences! LOL!
Even though we are just going on two weeks together, I have some big summer plans for us. This is the VERY best that I have felt since the fire and I am sooooooooo excited to start this new journey with Phoenix...He is the horse for me!
