Spent some time with Nina and her owner. Gave some demos of the things her horse can do and the things I expect. We saddled her, mounted, took pictures, bridled, played on the ground, looked at hooves... Unfortunately, the filly is going to be sold. Wish she could be mine but I just can't justify a horse of that caliber in my little herd. If I had big dressage plans, I'd feel differently.
Then, saddled up and rode Tina. She was calm, blowing often and very responsive. We walked and trotted and practiced lots of turns and stops. She did great.
