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!
