Alex and Handy Dandy

Alex went to her riding lesson last night — the first time back up since the fall.  She was pretty nervous but she did great.  She rode Handy Dandy last night instead of Patch.  The vet thinks Patch might be going blind in one eye, which is really sad.  But they don’t know for sure yet and Patch is probably happy to have a break from young kids for a while.  Anyway, by the end of the lesson Alex was riding on her own again (no lead rope) and doing really well with guiding Handy around cones.  I was relieved it went well because I know she was worried about taking another fall.  But I was impressed that she didn’t let it stop her from getting up there and trying again.

Here’s Handy Dandy — he’s a very handsome horse:
