I rode Rap It Up for the first time today and he did great!!!!!!! He was actually pretty lazy! Not at all what I expected from him! He was pretty rowdy on Monday, but the more time he spent NOT confined to a stall, the better he was. He is adjusting to his new home very well. He spent some time on the hot walker today and was an “old pro”.
My Dad and my brother were there today to help with his first ride and both were impressed with how quiet and laid back he was, and let me tell you, it takes a lot to impress those two! We will take him out on trails, Sunday or Monday. So far everything is great! I trust and quietly often seek the opinion of my father and my brother when it comes to horses and they both like him a lot! My brother rode him today and had nothing but good things to say about him.
I am attaching a couple of pics from today’s ride. Everything is going great and I am very pleased with Rap’s progress so far. I believe that he will continue to improve with time and work. I anticipate that I will be using him as a staff horse before this (fox hunting) season is over.
I hope that you and Barry are having as good a weekend as we are having.
