So excited! We have trail riding and a x-c school planned. I had my second ride on our latest CANTER project and although she is a chestnut mare I am in love. I loved her the minute I saw her but we have struggled with the summer tb feet syndrome. Glue on shoes and we will grow some foot I can't wait for the weekend to ride her. I taught her to stretch today and I could just feel her going mmm this is weird but okay. Smart! http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2639/...8c3d2a4158.jpg
Very excited! If I survive! I spiffed up a couple of our backyard fences to make them scarier so I can try and see what to do when Junior tries his little runout routine. Not that I'm obsessed because I blew the only time in my life I was actually in first place but it does seem to be motivating me. Wish me luck!
Well, I wish I was riding. I have a 5 day weekend. Spent yesterday stripping 3 stalls and putting in 6 inches of new base after the last monsoon came up into the bottom of the stalls and my draftx was standing in 5 inches of water. It was something I was waiting til fall to do, not in 90 degree weather
But at least it is done.
And now, I am in New England visiting the in-laws. Back on Monday to the swamp. I took Tuesday off too, hopefully there will be no rain and I can ride then!
Me! Me!! My family will be home for the weekend. I am volunteering at a local event on Sunday. My daughter and I will ride together tomorrow for the first time in weeks. I'll ride on Monday too. Even with a little predicted rain, I will be a good weekend. Horsey stuff and family all weekend!
