Aw Roadyy find some horsey time soon!
PH that sucks about the ride, I guess its better then seeing the same loop 3 times though, that would get so boring. My old trainer I think had those exact same blue half chaps LOL!
6gun...You're doing better then me, I'm way too much of a wimp to ride if its that hot and humid.
Spotted, I actually used my SMB's on trails (well used to we go naked now) I'd get them wet and muddy...then when I got back to the barn hosed them off and hung them to dry and they were like new the next day. I know they're expensive so it seems like it sucks to get them all muddy but theyre pretty tough! At least I thought they were.
I actually got in a good ride today :) Got to the barn and it was nice and quiet, Dexter trotted up to me in the field rather then running away from me like yesterday. I went out with rope halter, lunge line and whip to go over all our ground work. He was a super star at it...felt like I had my normal horse back...so I decided I might as well ride since its nice out and supposed to rain the rest of the week! Got him up to my trailer and he instantly started eating his hay...yesterday he wouldn't touch it...so I felt that was a good sign :) Got on and headed out. We worked a LOT of one rein stops, stopping off my seat and backing, I think it was good for him to do a good schooling ride rather then plodding along letting his mind wander. A few times he tried to trot without permission and I shut him down so fast, I think he was surprised lol! So was a good day, I'm glad, yesterday he was psycho pony. He broke my saddle bags, one of his boots and my lead rope yesterday. I guess the plus side to the broken boot is that gives me a reason to buy renegades rather then another easyboot glove ;)
Pretending to be a good boy with one ear on me listening ;)
