MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
I had a wonderful christmas riding today. I went to a local riding stable with a small group of other people, cleaned up boxes and after that we had a change to ride a free of charge. Because I was the last one which arrived at the stable I did everything little later than others - which meant that I was the last who left the stable. In the end everybody else has gone and I was alone with an old lesson mare having my christmas ride. The arena was covered with plenty of snow and the mare, who is normally pretty slow and lazy, was brisk and cooperative. I even asked her to do few turns on the forehand when walking. After that I asked her to trot but she caught it that I would want more turns on the forehand - what a silly horse
It's sad to think that this was the last Christmas Eve there because the stable will be disbanded in the next summer. I reckon that I'll remind that Christmas Eve and the old mare with a smile on my face in the next Christmas and later.
