In order to prepare for baby Smitty’s first show, we do a slew of things.
And by a slew of things, I really mean, nothing at all.
I don’t think that besides the day-in and day-out work of molding him into a good citizen, and our schooling on the flat, there’s not really anything else to be done but wait and see how it goes. We’ve officially got a saddle that has been professionally fitted and should alleviate some of Smitty’s sore lower back, and after the show he’ll get a few days off to think on his experience and recover.
But other than the general tack cleaning and list-making, baby horse is just going to do what he’s going to do.
And hopefully that means being a good boy. We’ll see.
Sorry for the lack of exciting posts this week! It’s a circus over here!
