For the third year in a row, I was able to ride on January 1st! Iím happy for my new tradition :)
It was sunny, around 40F. Very, very windy so Chase was on high alert most of the ride. Though, I felt like even with his not so great moments were better than they were our last solo ride, so Iím not too upset about it. We made it through it all without having to dismount.
The only pictures I really took were around the evergreens. Everything else is pretty desolate looking this time of year
We did the front field twice: once at the start, and again at the end. The first lap, there were a couple of guys flying a drone... and dogs barking... and we were less than graceful jigging and side-passing along the driveway to get past. The later lap was much better sans drone, and I was able to insist he stay on the driveway and walk forward like a normal horse.
We also had a little ďmomentĒ near the stream, not his favorite place on a good day... but the wind was making the bamboo creak and groan like mad- it was even a little eerie to my human ears, so I know it was freaking him out. But, after some persistent urging... he made it through.
