I was planning to have an awesome lesson write-up post for you with tons of new and improved jumping pictures. But I have jack. Why? Because I hate the weather.
I know that immediately I will get a bunch of comments about how much worse your weather is than mine, but at the moment I don’t care. I lost a lot of days riding this week due to rain, and when it was beautiful low 70’s and sunny on Saturday, all the rings were too wet to do much in. So we trail rode, and worked on Simon’s apparent phobia of puddles.
Also, I gave him a bath.
He’ll probably turn into a mud monster like his pasture-mate though, because as I was contemplating when I was going to ride Sunday… it started raining again.
So I pouted and needlepointed all day.
Needless to say I really did enjoy my time at the barn on Saturday though, even if it wasn’t filled with lots of amazing jumping. All I have to show for it is a few artistic pictures of Simon’s ears, because I just had my zoom lens with me and we were having some bonding time hand grazing.
It was one of those days where it was just nice to have a horse, even if there was no training agenda.
That being said, he’s being really good and I would like to lesson or canter again in the near future damnit! Potentially more exciting blogs in the future for y’all… or more ear pictures. It really depends on the weather.
