I continue to love Bella even though she's not as well trained as Lilly. Bella is a wiggle worm and isn't as good at standing still. So I didn't get too many pictures. When I went to grab the camera, she was zooming off down the trail! I have a split second to get the camera turned on, aim and fire! (With Lilly, there's time to make and eat a sandwich before she's ready to move on.) So here is Christine ambling along behind us on Lilly. One thing about Bella:. She has the best whoa of any horse I have ridden. When you ask her to stop, she STOPS. And then she's speedily walking off again!
Bill accused me of looking sour when we came back from our ride. But really, the ride I had on Bella was exactly as I thought it was going to be. Challenging, but far from impossible. Riding Bella is how Brandon feels when he drives my car. He says the car is so different from his Saab, it feels like if he stops paying attention for a minute, the car is going to lift off the road and do something wild. Whereas the Saab will essentially drive itself. With Bella, I always pay attention. She may get a little naughty at times, but she is not bad. In fact, in my eyes, she is the darling of the farm.
