Got out very briefly today, as life got in the way. The original plan was DH and I were going to ride this morning, then head down to Harrisburg for the horse expo. Instead, he got called into work for an "issue" so I took Dream and Sultan out on my own.
Weather was pretty unpleasant, with outright temps in the low 20s with a stiff wind (windchill was likely below zero, but I made a point not to look!), and snow showers. I had gotten a couple miles out when DH called and filled me in on the issue - the receptionist quit without notice, so he was there answering calls, etc. It was also a day everyone's heaters decided to break, so service calls were coming in fast (DH owns/runs a heating and air conditioning business). He would have gone out on calls himself, but someone needed to be there to answer phones. So I turned around and headed home (and am currently sitting in the office answering phones!).
On a good note, Sultan was fantastic for ponying. You would have thought he had been doing it for years. He stayed right along side us on a loose line and we even cantered! So while it wasn't a long ride (only did about 4 miles), it was a good one.
There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.
