I happened to take some pictures of someone introducing a young TB to water for the first time tonight. The horse was really good...he just didn't understand at first. And then when he went into water, it was very much like watching Tigger bounce through - a big leap, land on all 4 feet in the water, and then sprong! Straight back up in the air again. After tigger-bouncing his way through a couple of times, he finished up with ho-hum trotting through, an old pro already. The pictures are kind of cracking me up, so I thought I'd share.
So, here is the sequence.
He wouldn't go in with a lead, so he eventually got his feet wet by
This is a beautiful location! Your photos are also excellent! I actually laughed out loud looking at these. Thanks for sharing! Nice job the rider did staying on that ride! LOL That picture of all 4 feet in the air is priceless! I hope you know this rider so you can share with her!!
