Today I didn't ride because my lessons are on Wednesdays :(

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I rode my mare today and I LOVE her. Hauled out to the arena, lunged her, then ground drove her, then hopped on her, she was hotter than a hot thing, so walked and walked and walked, around cones, changing direction, until she got so bored that she came right down and was striding around the arena relaxed on a long rein. Once she did that I called it a day and hopped off, she is such fun.

I didn't ride today, because I sent my horse to the trainer's. Now I'm just "patiently" waiting for him to get back in 30 days. I feel like I'm such a boring person without my horse...I have absolutely nothing to do. O.o

Well there is a good reason why I didn't ride today, it was windy, really cold, snow blowing in the wind, Oh and it is a bit hard to get to the barn, they boys are getting the seeder field ready..right in front of the barn, and my trailer is there to, so I can't get to my kit.

I did, I did, I DID ride today! FINALLY! I spent over two hours just doing maintenance - grooming & feet, include soak time for two feet and then went for a quick bareback ride on the trails. Maybe 1/2 hour, but still... it was a ride! And she was a bit full of herself, of course... lack of attention + windy day + no saddle = PAY ATTENTION!

Of course, that means tomorrow is all work and no play. I will remember today when I'm working tomorrow.

I was planning on riding. But I was helping a little girl put a bit in her horse's mouth. The horse was chewing on the bit a lot. I checked the mares wolf teeth and yep so sharp it sliced by finger so deep my husband took me to the ER. I did put my hackamore and my saddle on the little girl's horse so she could ride before I left. I'll ride twice as long tomorrow.

I didn't ride today because my mare has an abscess in her right fore at the heel. It is MUCH better than it was yesterday though, but I am still anxious for the dang thing to burst so she can get on with healing. Over the past few months, it has been one thing or another putting either my mare or me out of commission in turn, and it's getting old! Ah, well, we will ride again soon . . .
