Meet "Noey", he's a Haflinger, comedian cross...
Otherwise he's catching a few zzzzz's! Sadly, I'm not horse shopping. Fortunately he's not for sale!
On to the lesson, we added "addressing the whip", sounds so easy all you had to do is carry a long buggy whip in your right hand, keeping it at approximately 11:00! It's not, not for me anyway. I felt as if I was holding two coffee cups in my right hand while attempting to open a gate with that same hand!!! All the while, driving the horse, making turns, changing directions & speeds!!!
Add that Noey being a Haflinger figures out relatively quickly he's gotten himself a rookie in the cart. He quickly realized cutting corners, taking shortcuts, moving uber slow were options as I figured things out.
So, I was sent home with homework!
Lincoln is going to love it!
