On Sunday, I dusted Gypsy off and took her for a spin in J's indoor arena.
Gypsy is so wonderful, even though she's really only been ridden a handful of times. She sets up beautifully in the bridle, she naturally just hooks right over and carries herself well. It only takes a small pull on the rein to get her to set back up. Her jog is extraordinarily slow and soooo smooth. Anyway, we worked on neck reining as she currently only knows the direct rein...she did very nicely.
J sat and watched as I worked Gypsy and she said that she wishes Gypsy's canter were further along because she looks so nice under saddle. Sigh, so do I J, so do I.
I've been looking for a rocking horse to give to my baby nephew, Dean, for Christmas. My budget isn't too high, so I can't afford a drool worthy Harrod's Rocker, but I'm sure we'll find something cute enough. I prefer the wooden varieties with the yarn mane and tail or a nicely made fabric one....cute.
Here's the website these gorgeous toys came from.
