Thank you Abby!!

I asked my friend to "watch" Denali for me while I'm in DK, and she has had to listen to my detailed list of "what to do if" when it concerns Denali. She is such a great horse, and I can't believe I am leaving her. It breaks my heart. She is going to be in training and my friend is going to ride her so I'm glad she'll be in good hands.

I guess I won't be writing on here. Hard to write about your horses training when you are half way around the world.

So we're leaving in two weeks. I've spent the past few weeks just getting Denali to come to me in the field and praising her with love and treats. That's as far as we've gotten. I've gotten on her a few times and she did okay. She has no clue what the legs mean and steers pretty nicely by the bridle. We'll need to change that. I honestly have no clue what I'm doing with her. Lots of help from my trainer, but Denali is a big horse with a big attitude and when she doesn't want to do something, she doesn't do it.
