Harley let me ride her today. This was the second time anyone has ever sat on her. First time was last week, with Barry. I know I am asking for trouble when I saw this, but I am totally amazed by her. She takes everything in stride. No, she is not pinning her ears at me, she is listening to me. She seems as happy as I am to play games with me. She has not gotten pissy, or excitable, about anything.

Even more impressive than her behavior is me and my nerviness. I am a pretty timid rider, so that I got the nerve to do my part is shocking to me. Tracy has been helping talk us through it, and that has been fun. It gives me a goal to work toward--not only teaching her things, but more importantly, giving me a place to push through my own fears.
I feel like a super star right now.
On that note, I quit you all so I can watch Zenyatta run in the Breeders Cup. I sure hope she protects her record and does not disappoint.
