Try a sundance? All kidding aside, work on some showmanship such as pivots, squaring up, standing while you practice your quarters. Also you can use an umbrella to despook your horse and keep yourself dry.

Very wet here in SA too - mine are getting some time off. I just bring them out, brush them, do feet, move them around a bit, and put them away - then go home and pray for a few days of sunshine!

You could send it my way. We are settling back into a serious drought and REALLY, REALLY need your rain.

Cherie, you are not alone... We have a week of upper 90th with high humidity in forecast (it seems to be ALWAYS a case on July 4th week). I'd much rather take rain over that! (because you can't ride, you barely can move during a day ).

We've just come off a 6 year long drought, I think we're entitled to the rain :P

Plus the state I live in, and the region of that state, is pretty much right at the bottom of Australia, which relies on the Murray River for water - and we are right at the 'sewerage' end of the river, all the eastern states use the water for irrigation and then we're stuck with the sludge, panicking that we're going to run out of water - there's bee a de-salination plant put in last year as a result.

So it IS nice to have rain, but I'd like to get a few rides in thanks!!

I wish we had ran. Hay prices are going up, up, up. $8-$11 a bale. Last year, we paid $3.50. This year our hay guy is charging us $5 per bale. Still better then other people, but ouch!!!
