Spring Training - It's not about baseball today!

Posted on May 7, 2015 at 4:35 PM

We are so happy that we finally have some beautiful Spring weather out here in Virginia. It was a LONG winter and seemed unusually cold. I thought that Spring would never come.

We had such a beautiful day on Sunday that we couldn't help but get our coming 2 year old Shire filly out and start her harness training. Dave and Ryan took her into a stall and introduced her to the harness. No problems there other than one tiny startle. She was born for this work!

She did so well that they decided she was ready to do a little walking around with her harness on.  Dave took her out in front of the barn on a long line and let her have the chance to get the feel of the harness while moving around.  Well, that also went great!  

Since everything was going so well, Dave and Ryan decided to introduce her to ground driving... ... ... YOU got it!  That went great too!

Ryan even decided to let her drag him around a bit to see what she thought of that and she seemed to enjoy the extra weight to pull.

Spring Training was a complete success!  Hoping our year continues like this but I think there might be more excitement around the corner when we start our little quarter horse mare under saddle.  I'll be sure to have my camera ready!  :)

Until next time, Happy Trails!
