Days with Rem

I was able to bring Rem home for a few days last month. We went to a clinic and I rode nearly every day. 
This is my new favorite view! 

A week ago I took him back to the trainer- Jacqueline Burke at Superior Quarter Horses in Clements Ca. She's been riding every day too, and he's getting more solid every day. 
I do miss him around though. It's been a long time since I had no horse at home to ride. Boy am I getting stuff done around the house! 

This is the picture I took of Rem last Friday. Isn't he just the cutest thing! And I love his color. 
I also was able to meet his previous owner. She still almost cried when she saw him.  
She did buy his half sister, a very sweet red mare that will be much more suited  to her riding style. I hope I was able to allay some of her fears about this horse not having a great home. 
Jaq just rolls her eyes when I love all over this guy- but I really can't help it. 

We are going to take him to a show on April 15th. It's a small local show - just a warm up and a training opportunity for Rem. Then an AQHA show April 21 ( a one day W/J ) hopefully we will make it around the pen there. And on April 27-28-29 the CAQHEA show. We will go in one or two classes there- all Walk Jog. 
So we have a full plate, so to speak. Lots of training opportunities!  I'm trying to get my outfits together while Jaq is pulling him together- Lil Mama and Denesirita are going too, so it should be a good time. 
Right now I am off to Bodega to ride out the rain in the trailer with my overworked hubby! Hopefully we won't get blown away by the wind!

He really is just the cutest. Can hardly wait to see the buckles pouring in.

He really is a good looking horse, so glad he's working out for you.
By the way, if I don't comment as much as I used to it's because of the blogger word verification you have, it's so hard to read that most times I just don't bother.
