My dearest student, Shannon Rich, wanted me to tell you all that I rode my very first Paso Fino today.
Pasos are a Spanish gaited breed, known for doing a quick, tap-dancing step.
The one I rode, Sentinel, doesn't quite do that gait, since he's out of shape and, frankly, I have no idea how to make it happen, but he sure did give it his best shot.
Suffice to say, I am now aware of where every OUNCE of fat on my body is located.
And I laughed REALLY hard.
But he was a very good boy.
Pictures to come.
