we've spent every day of spring break with Phantom. it is an absolute joy watching the girls get to know him, and him get to know us. we've done ground lessons: join-up, rope work and ground manners, and the girls have ridden him every day, dressage or trail.
he's a horse with a big personality. and somehow perfectly fits with the girls' personalities - as different as they are. i love watching them interact, individually, and together. their team effort in making this work has been noticed. i am very proud of them.
a month in, i couldn't be happier with our decision.
