Thanks to Mr. Country Cowboy trainer (MCC), I have much more trust in both my horses. MCC keeps
Yesterday we had a brisk morning with more than our typical amount of wind. The average was running about 22 mph. Ugh! I had invited another friend out to ride so I worked both boys in the round pen to settle them a bit. Doc (my 'Whoa go-to kinda guy') actually blew up and bucked and kicked out a few times, and exhibited waaayyyy more energy than is his usual.
While Pippin remained remarkably calm. He did put in one boot scootin' boogie and even my friend noticed it. His relapse reminded me of the rap that my dear friend sent me just after I had posted about Pippin's training. What a perfect summary of Pippin's adventures with MCC!
Pippin - 'in-trainin' Pippin - your dippin' and scootin' - ain't her blame.
Pippin - Pop-in (pop-out) Pippin - She twern't overreactin' to your game.
Pippin - back-cinch-buckin' Pippin - MCC's fixin' to tame your mane.
Pippin' - tie-up-hatin'-fender-hoppin'-halter-slidin'-eye-twinklin'-goose-sniffin'-foot-stompin'-puddle-hoppin'-silly boy Pippin - Your mama cain't wait - to have you home again!
She's right. I'm glad to have Pippin back at home, and I would like to add that after our round pen work we had a nice ride. My friend began working with 'Whoa' and then switched to 'Go'. No dippin' and scootin'. Just a pleasant ride on cute horses!
