Yishai offered to put the first week of rides on Apache for me and said he'd loan me Shabbat during that time. So he came over today to put the first ride on. She wouldn't let him catch her at first, and didn't want the saddle on, but she got over it. The first ride was perfect - she looked like she was already trained :) But then he put the snaffle bit in and got back on and there was a rodeo (she had never had a bridle on)! He barely hooked his leg over her back and she took off and bucked all around the round pen until he dove off onto the fence :) She would rear up when he asked her to back and still bucked a little. But he took of down the road to their place - and she did good. Here are some pics:
I'll post a video soon!
