Toodling with Tango, A Tuesday post
Okay I'll admit that I don't really do all that much "toodling" with this horse, but I liked the way it sounds so I dug back to like February and compiled all the ridiculous things I've done with Tango when I want to get him out but don't really feel up to actually working on anything.
Pictured above, our getup for 4th of July. We walked all over the farm, awkwardly trotted some figure-eights, cantered mostly because I was like "I AM RIDING MY RUNAWAY OTTB IN A HALTER" and wanted to do it.
Pictured below is one of probably three dozen photos I took while trying to highlight Tango's dappled butt.
Does an off the property trail ride count as toodling? For an event horse, I'm inclined to think maybe not... but I have SO MUCH fun trail riding this beast so we're counting this one pictured below. There were many others. I have a lot of ear shots of this horse at this point.
Oh, the first time I rode Tango in just a halter all over the property, documented as being in early February of this year.
I wanted him to stand on a log for no good reason other than I wanted him to do it.
He thought maybe I should keep my opinions to myself.
But he gave it a try.
And eventually he did it. I then rode him back to his stall, bareback and in just a halter.
