    We got a roundpen today! [​IMG]

    My daughter was so happy to see it and Tessie seems to like it too.
    Since we had her in a "safe" place, we rode her!
    We don't have any tack yet, so we just put her in the rope halter and rode her bareback!!

    Here is my daughter thinking about getting on her....



    Then she rode, while I lead Tessie...


    It was great fun...me and my daughter enjoyed it so much!!! She had a good laugh at me because when I got on Tessie I was so nervous! :eek:
    Tessie was great, didn't even seem to care about what the inexperienced people around her were doing!

    Good on you!

    She REALLY reminds me of my late mare, Vickie.

    Happy Riding.

    You all look so happy. Do you plan on riding her bitless?

    That's great! You will use that round pen a lot. And much safer to learn in. Tessie looks wonderful. You are doing well.

    Thanks everyone! [​IMG]

    Quote:No I didn't plan on riding her bitless, but when my daughter saw the roundpen she said she was riding her today! I am not sure I would trust her out in the open when she is bitless. But I really don't know yet.
    Heck, I guess we'll try just about anything...

    That's great! I used to ride my pony bareback with just a halter and lead rope. If they've been trained for that it's great fun and easy to just jump on and go.

    I'm glad you're enjoying Tessie so much.
