I can't believe it's December already, this year has gone by fast. Before I know it, I'll be graduating high school and going to college. So scary.
Today is the first day of rifle season so I'm not turning the horses out. I can see four hunters from my living room and I'm not taking any chances of someone mistaking one of the chestnut horses for a deer...
Other than that, I'm doing all of my loads of homework from Thanksgiving break today. Fun stuff... Actually, I don't think it will be too
bad. I have to read a lot of the Canterbury Tales, do an AP Bio lab and start reading the new material, and start writing my manual for DECA. Not as bad as I had thought it'd be, really.
I rode Takavor yesterday and I am SO SORE. My knee felt pretty good in the beginning, I was able to two point some and everything! It still hurts to really stretch down into my heel but it's getting better. Once my knee started getting sore, I dropped my stirrups and let my leg hang a little more. I felt like a dressage rider!
But my stomach muscles and legs are killing me from all that sitting trot stuff I did. It's a very satisfying sore though, to know that I'm finally riding again and getting back into shape.
