On September 16th, Ozymandias went on his first hunter pace and he behaved like a true champion. My four year old walked by the trailers unloading horses and by tents blowing in the breeze filled with people drinking sherry without causing a fuss. He merely perked his ears up and looking around curious and interested.
We rode through the course beautifully. Ozzie was on top of his game, responsive and eager to be outside. Only one small issue came up. We entered a field and the right side contained 50+ cattle fenced off by a simple one rope fence. Never having seen a cow before, Ozzie had no idea what to do. Then they began to moo and follow us as we walked across the field. Most horses would bolt. Ozzie merely tried to trot away. He was excellent!
