Montesa (Jessie), Ducati (Darby), Penton (Petey) Moto Guzzi (Guzzi

This is about the third time Jessie has been in the team. The new harness came today, so mostly this is it. Traces are long, and I need to steal the trace carriers from the synthetic harness for the leaders. Bridles fit ok, and everything else works with minor tweaks. Looks pretty good on them I think. Not sure about this wagonette. Pulls easy, but maybe a tad too big. Everything works, and that’s a plus! Love this team, and the mare will be great when she is ready. Poor Petey is just too worried about doing his job, he has a hard time relaxing. 

Had a great driving day today. Worked ten today, and one lesson. All positive results. I love my ponies! I drove Velo and Jessie together for the first time today. They've each been paired with everyone else, and both been in the lead of the team, but I had not put the together yet. It took Velo a few minutes to soften and give to the bit but she really worked nicely once she got it! Jessie is a trooper and just does his job and clocks along like he wasn't a roadster pony his whole life.

This was a the first time out of the box for the ponies, last year pre-WEG. Eagle, the right leader, is now retired to the life of a pleasure pony in FL, and Jessie and Velo have joined the team. As soon as we get good weather, I’ll get some video of the new ones up. Look for us at Equine Affaire in Colombus OH in the Pfizer Fantasia show.
