I've been trying to ride for the last week, the weather juts doesn't want to cooperate. *grunt*
I chose to ride Harley after she proved to be too strong for my husband. Did lots of walk/halt trot/halt transitions. She's very patient, but between weather, lack of use, my husband's inexperience, etc. she isn't nearly as tolerant. My husband is still learning to ride and so sometimes he forgets to release at his half-halts. Harley has learned this, coupled with being already strong and in turn as has gotten fairly hard in her mouth. So I'm working on softening her up, tuning her some, and selling her to a more show suitable home. She's too nice of a horse to be used for trails and she's too much for my hubby.
However, after our ride we decided to separate the girls. They are far too attached to one another. Fiona wasn't going to have any of it. Jumped a four rail fence, taking out the top rail with her, and cantered back to Harley. Took her back and once she started sizing up the fence again, we gave in, took her back to Harley and intend to find a different route.
Very... eventful day with the horses :P
