Horsey Play Dates are So Much Fun!!!

Today I was attended a play date hosted by our horse group (The Southwest Virginia Natural Horsemanship Group). I had an absolute blast! Rick (hubby) came and we brought our Thoroughbred, Wilbur. There were about 20 horses and even more people (I think). We all played with our horses on the ground in the obstacle course, on the hills, crossing the creek, and much more (some, including me, even got to ride).

This adventure was a first for Wilbur and I. I can certainly say that I am glad that I am using the Parelli Natural Horsemanship with him. Wilbur was acting very right-brained and reactionary at first. But, using the seven games (the foundation for PNH), we were able to get through that and there was a noticeable change in him (he was now left-brained) and his logical, thinking side took over. This horse is a total joy. He is challenging and fun to be with. I truly love him.

Overall, the day was tiring but great fun. We even got to enjoy socializing with other club members as we had a potluck dinner (while the horses got to relax and eat grass. I look forward to more play dates this summer.
