Chanel did me proud yesterday. She loaded onto the horse trailer like a pro, then backed off of it flawlessly when we arrived at Hill 'n Dale stables. She let me bathe her in the lovely heated wash stall, and we primped and trimmed and groomed her till she shone like a copper penny. We rode a bit in the big arena, too. Today we will go for a trail ride, then back home to her regular abode. It has been a real treat to hang out with the people at the stable, learn from them and watch them as engage in their horse loving hobby.
