LOL, it rained the night I washed my car, although it wasn't supposed to! Go figure. & the weather is crazy...it keeps jumping here too!
yayy for all that saddle time. So awesome!! I ended up hitting the trails this weekend too finally!
aww, I bet they all kept you on your toes!
Carmen is a smart girl!! And bale up some of that grass for me, LOL!
I confess, my remote desktop connection isn't working, so I had to call the IT people & just waiting for them to call me back. I was in the middle of something & it just kicked me off.
It's been happening to a few of my coworkers today.
This past weekend, I took Promise out solo on the new trails (we went with a group last time) near the barn. I handwalked her on the road leading up to the park, because it's still new to her. Being next to her helped.
Saturday we didn't go super far, because she was a bit tense during the ride. Two dogs chased her while we were on the road, so it wasn't a good start. :( I was irritated because they just let their dogs run out, but whatever.
On Sunday, no dogs ran out onto the road & she was much more relaxed. Let her just graze when we got to the park & then I hopped on once she was fully calm. Had an amazing ride. Although, we DID get lost LOL - but we found our way back. There's over 60 miles of trails, so it's a big place. Marked, but still - it's huge!
We did at least 8-9 miles. Such a good weekend. <3 May take her out again this weekend if the weather is nice so she gets even more used to it.
I gave her the last few days off because I know it was a lot for her. BUT! I had to order new trail boots! The Easyboot ones we had...one came off on the trail, & another was falling apart. So I ordered Cavallos, they're a better brand. I replaced the Easyboot ones twice, so no more. But she was REALLY good. So prud of her!
Safe to say I'm sore, LOL.
