|meeting a horse when we first arrived|
Next they walked him over to the grooming area (sorry I don't know the real terminology yet) to begin to learn all the steps and safety processes.
Cate was really engaged in learning the steps in getting the horse ready. She readily repeated unfamiliar words like "bridle" and didn't push back at all when Miss. S gave her instructions. They brushed the horse with the different types of brushes and even cleaned his shoes with some sort of pick. The whole time Cate was listening intently and focusing on the tasks - I didn't hear much out of her except her little instructions like "Hershey be still" and "Hershey stop moving your legs"!
