Piper's Training - Week 2

Today is 2 years to the day that I brought Piper home from Equine Voices.  Wow, how time flies!  She's come a long way from the 10 month old PMU filly who was headed to auction (you can still see the "105" that was shaved into her side)...

To this big beautiful girl:
Colt did a great job with her last week and Piper made tons of progress.  So much so, that today I got to ride her around the arena!

We walked...
We trotted...
We laughed, we cried..    OK, just kidding about that part.  We even loped!  I didn't ride her that long, but it sure felt great to be riding her, actually riding and having her respond.  She still has work left to do, but she is coming along really nicely.

I'm not proud of her at all.  Can you tell?
