I say Klein is the total package because just LOOK at this girl go!! The above picture is of a 3'9" vertical yesterday. She has the brains, the beauty, the heart, the motivation, the talent, and the athleticism. Plus, I'm pretty sure she'd save me from a burning building. Words just can't describe her.
She was in such a cheery mood yesterday too. After I renewed her Irish clip I let her out in the sand paddock to have a break from standing still for me with the annoying clippers. She didn't go far and I said "Klein baby! What are you doing?? You don't want to go out??" She came right over and stuck her head in the window of the stall I was standing in front of. I was going to clean up our area a little more but she wanted to hang out. I said "Ok, well if you're ready to work, let's get to it." She followed me to the open stall and came in so I could bring her into the isle to get her tacked up.
Klein mare on the landing side of a 3'3" locking on to the 3'9" vertical and thinking "Oh look, a 3'9"...I'll see your challenge, and I'll raise you!"
Me getting left just a bit behind. She gave me a BIG, fantastic, 110% effort over it.
I have a lot more to write about the past week but...I just wanted to show you guys these pictures from yesterday.
When Klein and I are together, the world pretty much ceases to exist. Whether it's jumping a 3'9", spending the weekend competing at a horse trials, hacking out on trails, going for a gallop, spending the day on the beach, going pedal to the medal on a Training level xc run, or just hanging out...we are in our own little world.
