Trail ride has been cancelled/postponed. My friend's husband is having back/chest problems today after hauling their heavy suitcases up some stairs. Says it hurts to breathe. Hoping it is just muscular. So, now we are shooting for next week.
Had my picture taken today by BO with Ermitaño. I also got a couple of complements after my ride on him today, and I noticed some improvement myself. He definitely is more my size than Presu and, as he is a younger horse, he is more fun, but man does he get HOT. We managed a beautiful, relaxed, collected canter to the right, but to the left he was more tense/frustrated/dunno what. Felt like he was going to take off like a bat out of he!! at any moment. Set off all sorts of triggers in my brain, but I held it together (and changed leads as quickly as possible...). He is definitely a challenge I hope to learn from and overcome (or, well, at least survive).
