I started this thread for pictures of my rides on my Standardbred mare Lovebug (or more commonly known as Honey) awhile ago when I started riding in January after a two year hiatus. Long story short, it didn't last long as Honey was actually really sore. So now with her being seen by a chiropractor and put onto a strict SLOW back to fitness scheme, Honey and I have been working solidly for the last two weeks on getting back on track. We've just been walking for now, and start trot week this upcoming week (for 2-5mins only).
It certainly has been interesting, and with Honey being quite the porker from 2 years off and ballooning this past spring (despite all my efforts), her new saddle isn't sitting where I'd like it to. But I've been assured for the amount of work we're doing, that getting the weight off this way is far more beneficial than waiting for her to lose it over this winter. So please no comments on the saddle, I'm well aware -_-
Here's a collection of pictures from our rides so far. I'll be posting all the pictures to our rides in this thread. :)
