With a super sensible friesian stunt horse for her sire (Trienko Van Noordwijk), it was no surprise that little miss Trijntje was super chilled about going in the float for the first time.
Juno made a wonderfully patient example while little Trijntje was coaxed on with tiny bites of carrot. She travelled calmly and came off like a pro. The beach was a new experience for her and we practiced walking through pools of water and a little lunging with Juno.
As Juno was loaded for the return journey, Trijntje whinnied and tugged at her rope - she knew that she would be left behind if we didn't let her back on the float, and tramped up the ramp without hesitation. A great sign of things to come!
