loving lizette

we learned this weekend that we could buy lizette if we wanted to. apparently all of the lesson horses are for sale at any time, but at 45,000DKK ($8600), for a 12-year-old with a stiff rear left leg she has to warm out of, it seems a bit pricey, to say the least. so we'll continue to enjoy her on saturdays and sundays. but she is lovely.

and in the saturday lesson, sabin learned a bit of jumping. sabin was the only one who could keep the horse pointed at the jump and keep her from avoiding it at the last second. all of the other horses were totally ducking it because they could get away with it. sabin's doing well, but it could also be a testament to how wonderful lizette is. and of course, they were really just trotting over it, since it wasn't that much of a jump.

You know, back before the economy went in the toilet, that would not have been an unreasonable price for that horse. A kid carrier like that has always been worth their weight in gold.
