When I arrived at the Farm at 9 am, Anita whisked me to the training barn in her golf cart.  It was so cold and foggy, we draped a blanket over our legs.  When we got there, Bright was walking out of the shadow of the barn, fully tacked, and ready to go for a little spin.  His exercise rider legged up and they started walking to the track with another chestnut.  Bright acted like a total professional.  In this photo, Bright is on the left.  His rider is in blue.  You can see that he is quite a bit taller at the withers than his companion.  Bright is not ready to gallop yet.  His bones are still forming and you don't want to stress them too much.  He needs time to grow into his tall and lanky frame.  So he just walks and jogs a bit.  He is still a baby in his head and alittle spooky.  But he likes being out on the track and is easy to handle.  He enjoys his morning walk.  He has been in training for 2 1/2 months now and he's a good student.
