“On the first day of summer we had some outstanding weather in the Pacific Northwest, Washington upper 70’s. “I thought this is the day I will slip my cow girl socks and boots on one more time as it’s been over three years.”
GOD is amazing, never give up as GOD will never give up on you!
I am happy to share I was able to ride our mammoth donkey in the arena for fifteen minutes.
Rio is a complete gentleman, we worked on steering as he has none due to the semi truck accident and me not being able to train and ride. I rode Rio with the Parelli bareback pad, rope halter (no bit, no spurs), carrot stick to help with steering, gloves and his legacy boots on the front as he has shoes on the front. If my body can continue to get stronger and not go backwards I will be able to ride again.
Did I mention how tall he is?
Rio is 16’1 at the withers not the ears the last time I stepped up on the steps to get on it was easy now he is way taller than the steps. Riding him is smooth and easy he is complete gentleman.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
