The other day Bill was riding Zeloso in the stadium jumping area (fenced-in inside a paddock, grass base), Sophie was riding Blue and Allen was watching. At one point Sophie and Blue were going over jumps and Bill stopped to watch. Zeloso pointed out that there was grass touching his toes and wouldn’t this be an opportune time for a snack? Bill noticed that Zeloso was eating, raised the horse’s head and shortened the reins. Bill was thinking that he had things under control and could sit there watching the jumping. Wrong. Five years ago, Zeloso learned how to bow on one knee under saddle and that’s what he did with the delightful result: his mouth was at grass level.
