Good horses

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.

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
