Horses Horses Everywhere...

and none of them to ride. Since I am technically still on light duty from my surgery and will be until at least April 27, I did not get to ride this weekend. I still had fun watching Ron drive Rubi, Trevor take his lesson, Beni throw a fit because his momma, Shana, was fixing Rubi's blanket and not paying attention to him, bringing in Rubi from the paddock so she could eat, feeding a couple of snacks to Beni then sneaking him a few more (shh, don't tell) and just generally being around them. I also took lots of pictures because that's just what I do and because I have a niece that loves horses.
Ron driving Rubi and getting a lesson too.

Trevor, on a borrowed horse, taking his lesson.
He did really well!

When we got up to the barn, Shana let Beni run around in the arena and burn off some energy. He was very happy to be running around.

Rubi, on the other hand was ANGRY that she, the princess, was being ignored and threw a fit herself to let us all know.

The beautiful, Miss Rubi.

Beni is full of personality and a sweetheart. I, however, had a hard time getting a picture of him with both ears forward. One forward, one back, that was the look of the day.

Here are a couple of silly short videos of Beni running around in the arena. In this first video, you can hear Shana yell, "I can do it too!" We were laughing because Rubi was trotting pretty and busting around her little pen trying to get our attention away from Beni. Shana was speaking for Rubi.

In this video, you can see Beni come over to us then Shana quickly dips down and hides behind the wall. Shana jumps up to scare him and he gets mad, kicks at her and runs off. Apparently, this is a common fun game that they play!
