brian and ann talk to us as we harness pearl.
yes, i'm in the driver's seat. just because you know how to ride,
doesn't mean you "get" driving a horse.
and my student was sitting with me.
what if i made a mistake?
pearl knows her business,
and brian was coaching.
and i certainly was...unused to reins that are almost as think as my horse's girth,
and the fact that her language is gee and haw,
and i had no leg to use on her!
i got to drive pearl today.
so did one of my students. and later a fellow staff.
pearl is an amish raised, 16 year old standardbred mare.
she is pearl, indeed.
