When You Least Expect It…

You can find a training opportunity!  Riding around my yard this morning, my horse and I were working on basic suppling exercises, transitions, and moving through tight spaces.  As we rode I spied this banana tree leaning WAY over thanks to an enormous cluster of bananas, and with cries of delight headed the horse toward the tree.  Of course, what my horse saw were those humongous leaves waving and flapping in the breeze…..it took a few minutes to work our way up to them, accompanied by a fair amount of snorting, stomping and twitches, but success was achieved and Dici decided that those things might actually be edible.  Mission accomplished! And the bananas are now residing on the back porch waiting to ripen.
