Grrrr the Rain is ruining my Training

I so wanted to get out and work with Cody And Grace this weekend .
The Ground is way to wet and now it is raining again... grrrrrrr
I guess I can just hope it stops and maybe we can go on a walk.
I know this is more of a rant than Training thing .. But gosh Darn it I hate set backs.

I'm glad my barn has a covered arena. With how much rain we get in the Pacific NW I've never understood how you could have a horse here without one- you'd be unable to ride for 8 months of the year!

the training I am doing needs to be done outside.. Cody is so used to arena riding that he is skidish when under saddle while out.. so we are working on getting him used to the out door riding

Since it's been super soggy most of June, I ride in the rain. I head for the bush trails so we are undercover of the forest canapy. Just hate saddling up a wet horse though, kinda stinky.

You get really, really, wet.

And you have an entire wardrobe of, according to the product descriptions, ridiculously waterproof things that turn out, in real life, to be not so waterproof.

And most of your riding time is spent wondering how you could weasel your way into a barn with an indoor.

Just remember the other side of the coin. No rain = no pasture/hay. I can't work with my boys either right now, but I'm so happy the grass & hay are getting much needed rain

To much rain here as well, we've just gone from ice and snow, to wet wet wet wet, rain, storm, hail, rain, and I am so so sick of it.

I don't have an indoor, and the soil around here just goes slick when it's wet and I can't ride anywhere.

But yes we do have plenty of grass

I'm with littrella. We need rain here bad. I'm lucky to have nice pastures but most in my area are looking brown and dying :( You can send me some of your rain if you want!
