Mezza Now 5!
Hard to believe that Mezza is growing up! Today is actually her 5th birthday.
Dawn, her owner, brings her to the local equestrian center once or twice a month, depending on our erratic weather, where I can work with and ride her.
In the interim between blog posts Mezza has gone on with her walk, trot and canter under saddle.
Then, this past January and February, Mezza went to Kansas, where Dawn's daughter, Jenn, has a friend who trains in a reining barn, and Mezza got her first taste of intense, consistent riding work.
When she returned at the end of February, she was buff!
Dawn brought her out to the equestrian center several weeks later, and I got the chance to ride her again. I wanted to try some loose rein techniques on her for relaxation, and she did wonderfully.
Here is one of the videos.
