|With my dear Wanda the Fjord.|
BUT the biggest thrill was I got my first lesson in long lining with Wanda! (Similar to driving mules...)
I walked with one of the professional handlers with her explaining what she was doing, how to do it and what I needed to watch for. After about 15 minutes, Wanda was nice and calm and I was handed the reins... It was thrilling and humbling.
I have so much to learn. So much to remember and to be aware of. Communicating with a horse with words, touch and total concentration is magical.
I am blessed that Wanda is such a patient and sweet horse and will let me learn a new skill.
Animals are my heart. They really are.
