I rode Lefta on NYE at dusk. It was my first ride in months, after district finals the horses pretty much got a big vacation/break while I tried to let my leg heal (torn/bruised groin muscle from earlier in the season).She was pretty well behaved but I could tell she really wanted me to let her open up some instead of walking/trotting. My leg felt the strain of getting on though (should have used a mounting block!) so we stuck to quiet slow work.
Frosty got the call for the first ride of the year and he was so good! You'd never know he'd had so much time off. We wandered around the arena playing with a few things to work on softness. It was the perfect start to the day.
-2C on January 2nd!! :oI wasn't really dressed for riding, I had gone out to grain and maybe play with the horses a bit but man these fleeced lined leggings are nice for milder winter days! I may wear them some more, but I either need to find bigger stirrups or wear different boots. I've been hung up in a stirrup before and once was enough!
While I really like these milder temps I sure hope we get some more snow.
