I am trying to be optimistic about Tessa's future as a riding horse, hoping that she is on her way to a full recovery. This would pose a minor obstacle however...what to do with Emma while Tessa and I are out blazing the trails? The answer is simple, Emma just has to come with us of course. The exercise is just what a donkey needs. To that happy end, I have been trying to teach Emma to pony off of Tessa. All without actually riding Tessa.
