First ride on Blitz!
 
I haven't ridden consistently for over a year now, and today I had my first ride on my friend's gelding Blitz. I'm going to be working her mare regularly and occasionally hopping up on this guy for a fun ride.

Please no critiques! I know exactly what my issues are and the year off brought back ALL of my old bad habits. I'm planning to start lessons with a dressage instructor on the mare so I will shortly be on top of it.

My boyfriend is quite the photographer, no? Ha ha.

Enjoy!



Warming up.

I agree Pinto! He's great to ride. Tested me a bit, and was confused that someone else was riding him, but he's honest and very responsive.

He NEVER gets ridden by anyone else but his owner, ha ha. He was weirded out.

PumpkinzMyBaby22 07-01-2011 12:23 AM

He is gorgeous! It looks like you had a tonne of fun to be riding him :) I hope you have fun with the mare to :D

gaelgirl 07-01-2011 01:41 AM

He is a very hansom boy. You two look really good together.

PS I love your awesome saddle pad!

SMCLeenie 07-01-2011 02:15 AM

^ Agreed about the saddle pad! You have quiet a handsome boy!

Gidget 07-01-2011 06:37 PM

Just curious,why have you not been riding regulary? I haven't seen you on here for a long time it seems but always enjoyed seeing pictures of you riding.

Gillian 07-01-2011 08:37 PM

Thanks you guys!

And Gidget, I had to give Zeus back to his owner when I moved for college. Now it's been a year, I've moved back to my hometown, have my own place, and am riding for the woman who owns the barn where I kept Zeus. It's great to be back!
