The shame of it all

My life has taken a new twist. My human has decided to expand her horizons and has started riding western. What have I done to deserve the humiliation? It was a new experience and I wanted to wipe the smug look off of Shorty's face as we walked around the ring; the day he shows up english I will have a major horse laugh! For now we are using my human's regular bridle but the instructor said it could be changed later. As if! I live in dread she will become enamored of those brightly colored nylon reins and saddle pads and shame me before my Dressage contemporaries. What if she roaches my mane? Oh the horror! More later
