Piper's training has been going very well. She saddles up with no problems (other than reaching around to chew on the stirrups!) and she really looks like a big horse when she is under saddle. I remember when I first brought her home, she came up to my shoulder at the withers and I could easily put my arm around her neck. That's not happening anymore! And I have now officially had 2 rides on her in the round pen! The first day was last Sunday, Valentine's Day. She did great! All we did was walk around, stopping and starting. I did manage to get her to back up a few steps, too. I mainly wanted her to get used to walking around with my weight on her.
