Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Lesson for Lucille
My trainer came up yesterday and saddled Lucille and took her out for a ride in the round pen. She was a GOOD GIRL and easily went into her gait. she doesn't go very fast, fortunately! :-) But, she does gait! That will make it so much easier for my back. I'm also going to buy a seat pad for my back and a new pad for my saddle. So, I'll have some shopping to do!!! Here are some pics that the ranch owner took of my trainer on Lucille. Next week, she'll saddle and ride Quad. Remember, he reared up and took off sideways when she tried to ride him a few months ago, so she's been working with Quad and getting him used to a regular sized saddle and flopping stirrups! Oops! Here are the pics of Lucille's lesson.
