Daisy-Mae is a great horse to ride. I ride her Western, and she is great. She has wonderful gaits. She was used for barrel events and team penning before, and it shows. She loves to canter and make very sharp turns, then keep cantering really fast. She is a dream-come-true to me. I just rode her bareback for the first time yesterday and again today, and she is great at that, too. Her smooth trot is very easy to sit to, and her canter is nice and slow. She brings me so much joy. Right when you get on her she wants to canter. It's hard sometimes to go through warming up with her first! She is awesome on the trails,too. She doesn't spook, just gets overly interested in her surroundings :-). I was riding her up a hill today, and, though I thought at first she was cantering, I realize now that she was galloping! It was smooth, though, and she slowed down quickly when I asked her to. I've never galloped before! It was amazing. She is starting to see me as her "person". She comes to me in the paddock and it seems like she is starting to bond with me more. I think she likes it that I ride her and work her, which is why she is starting to like me. The feeling is mutual. She likes all the personal attention she is getting a lot. She hasn't been given this much TLC that I am giving her every day in a while. I love her. Anyway, I got kind of carried away. I just wanted to show a pic. of her and I. More updates later.
