She was saved from slaughter and put to use as a even-tempered driving horse.  Becky Big isn’t really accustomed to riders, but with Liz leading the way, she was comfortable giving both Erick and me a chance to ride her around the arena.  I must admit, at 16 hands, I was nervous.  She appears so stocky, I assumed she must be short, but once I was standing beside her, her true height became more apparent.  

Erick went first.  Followed by me and my hilarious attempt at mounting a horse as wide as a sofa chair.  For her size, Becky is as snugly as a teddy bear.


Sleeping beauty on the way home…


And yet another reason I’m happy to be home…  I love TC folk.
