McCrae’s First Ride

On Tuesday I groomed and tacked up McCrae for his first ride here at Wetherbrooke Farm.  I bought him in Lexington in January and he has just been hanging out here for a few months.  I think he was beginning to assume he was permanently retired.   I put him on a lunge line and let Jessica take a pony ride on him.  He could not have cared less.  After a few minutes, I lunged her at a trot—equally as quiet.  We think he will be fantastic.  He gets new shoes on Monday, and then the training will begin.  I am looking forward to it!!!!  I hope to have him ready to do a walk trot dressage test by May.  He will be thrilled to have a job that doesn’t involve sprinting in circles to the left.
