Kiki got to attend her first clinic! We were lucky enough to have a sporthorse handling clinic at the barn where clinicians learned from professional handlers how to show horses of different ages. It made for a long day for the barn team as we provided all of the demo horses from foals next to their dams up to mature stallions. Theo was a piece of cake since he's very good about trotting along with a handler. He got braided up and that was it. Kiki, on the other hand, was a multi-day project.
Day one was standing in the pouring rain while wrestling her cob mane into braids.
