Misty in Montana

Misty in Montana  Misty’s a spirited school horse.  She has a habit of only obeying the “right” commands.  She determines, very quickly, whether the rider knows what they are doing or not.  If she determines she knows more than the rider, she does it her way; which usually makes the rider look like a better rider than they really are.

Polo Anyone?

Polo Anyone?  Today’s polo games were just a couple of miles from my house.  I have driven by the polo field many times but never stopped until now.  It’s a private field, but today it hosted a charity event and women’s polo competition.  Polo people know how to have fun.  They dress up, have raffles, bring the family, and camp out on the field for the afternoon.  Of course, you must love horses.
