I’ve been reflecting on the weekend and what good horses Kobi and Sugar are.
My niece and nephew from Asheville, NC came for the weekend while their parents enjoyed the Gentleman of the Road concert that came to St. Augustine.
My niece, Lindsay, wanted to ride Kobi for two reasons. One was to say she rode the horse in the book Kobi: Memoirs of a Mustang and the other was to canter since it rained too much at her Girl Scout camp over the summer for her to canter their horses.
After giving her detailed instructions for riding Kobi, I handed her the reins (both figuratively and literally). They did well. I’m surprised either of them listened to me or each other.
Now Lindsay is one of the five who have cantered Kobi – and elite group to say the least.
As for my nephew, William. He was content to walk and trot on Sugar, grinning from ear to ear.
