Kim and Milli

January 28, 2013

I have had Milli for about a month and have decided that we just do not “click”.  This has been frustrating for me because she is an awesome pony, with a giant heart, an amazing work ethic, great grounds manners, and has done nothing wrong.  She has been a joy to work with, and been perfect when I have ridden her.  I can’t even say what it is exactly, but when I ride her, I don’t get that feeling.

So my teammate Kim, who had originally gone with me to try Milli out, said she would give her a try.  So she tried her out at a practice we had at James S Long Park in Haymarket, Virginia.  Kim rode Milli through some games and popped her over some jumps.  Milli took to games like expected, with out batting an eye.  She needs some work on her turns, and to learn to neck rein, but she is a very smart pony and will get the skills figured out in no time.

Maybe it was the golden of Milli’s coat, and Kim’s ever present smile, but the pair looked like they were glowing with happiness.  At the end of practice Kim took Milli home with her.

Kim emailed me a few days later and said she has been riding Milli and its going great.

I am so happy that Kim and Milli make a good pair.  Milli has been needing her own special person to love on her.  And Kim needs her own special pony that she can love on.  I can’t wait to ride with them this season!

A few photos of the rest of us at practice.  (Cayla was also riding with us, but there are no photos of her)
