PostHeaderIcon Powder’s Progress

Powder Beauty - April 2011

 Powder is with Tony and Jenny Vaught for her start. (Both Tony and Jenny took two Young Horse Development clinics with Pat Parelli and Ronnie Willis before they had to drop out of the program.) And you know that my horses are gaited. Gait is forever on a gaited horse owner’s mind. Tony said he had been riding Powder about a week or so.

 I gulped and thought, here’s the moment to ask…. “How’s her gait?” I said. Tony didn’t answer for a few seconds. I thought he might say the awful pace word. Finally he replied, “Slow”.

 Slow is good. Slow is the opposite of reactive and bolting. Slow is left brain. I like slow as an answer!
