Okay so I went to my current barn to ride and I was reminded of whyyy im moving :roll: I get there and trash is all over the barn...I (being a good boarder and horse person in general) picked it up. Then I went to get my horse, who is allllll the way in the back corner of the pasture in the one itty bit of shade the horses have access too. Because i'm moving they already filled my pasture spot
So there is too many horses in the pasture. All in one corner of shade...They haven't mowed the grass in forever! The actuall "grass" is under weeds. Sticky grassish weeds that gets black stuff all over the horses faces and legs. It is also incredibly hard to walk through. Doc is apperently upset cause he doesnt come to me like normal...which makes me assume someone is messing with him...again. Once I get him, you have to go through mulitple gates to get to the barn. The gates are a pain to open and close cause they are broken. I got up to the barn and tacked up. When I got to the arena I found that they haven't dragged the sand arena in FOREVER so the back part has some really deep sand and there are rocks everywhere! It was hard to ride cause I was constantly watching my footing. Also, the jumps havent been kept up well and were a pain to raise. When I finished I took him up to the barn to rinse him off. When I put him in the washrack the water took ages to cool down from beeing scorching hot. I was agrivated the whole time. Doc did good though. He is slightly out of shape but not bad. And he got all of his right leads and did a good job picking his canter up from a walk. Jumping was hard cause of the footing and it threw both of us off.
I think im going to ride tommrow morning but im not sure. I will deffantly ride tuesday cause we are going to get my tack box. And then going to buy my new locker for Moonlight =]
