Pearl is historically Just Not That Into Water. Last time I tried to fix it aka coax her into a body of water so I could tell her she’s a good girl and get right back out, I almost drowned us and I succeeded in drowning a phone. So when torrential rains early last week created a giant puddle, I mean Water Hazard because we are Wannabe Eventers, I couldn’t resist doing a little schooling. Fortunately, she can be convinced to do almost anything if there is a Going Fast component involved. She was a little hesitant trotting through the first time, but soon she was cantering through like a pro and loving it.
Good girl, Pearl.
