Briones Horse Center- Ta DAAaaa!

Here is the front of our new barn. Nice huh? Our horses are stabled in the wing to the left, about three stalls in.

The arena isn't as large as it looks here, but it is plenty big enough to lope circles and practice trail!
Here is Lil Mama tacking Bob up. The stalls are good and large- and he needs every inch.
My ride today was a disaster! Desi has totally 'forgotton' everything he's ever learned. We spent a hour and a half just reviewing a circle, at the jog, bending the ribs, not dropping a shoulder. Sheesh! I'm just going to chalk it up to the move- and his little vacation. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
On a brighter note- no pulling back today!

Oh awesome! Holy cow, Bob is a big guy. A gentle giant?

You sure sound happy to be at the new place.;)
