|Sunshine, green grass, and rolling hills. I can't wait. This was Ginny's pasture last summer. The entire property is 640 acres, which seems enormous when 10 acres is 'huge' here on the coast.|
Today was a wet and miserable day but I sucked it up and got Ginger out and about. We just went down to the club grounds. Knowing there was no hope for my Stubben, (which although new-ish is not exactly known for it's padding) I tacked up with my cushy western saddle and went "wenglish". Sadly, it only took a few minutes in the saddle before my tailbone was screaming and I had to get back off and hobble around again. Frustrating. I'll have to try a sheepskin or gel pad for a bit, I guess. I put an old couch cushion in the truck so I can drive around comfortably. Our town is a retirement destination so my vehicle cushion is actually quite fashionable - everyone else has one too! Sadly I don't think I can attach it safely to Ginger :) You're all probably getting sick of me whining about how sore/beat up I am - it's kind of starting to sound like the hospital waiting room around here lol. Remind me again never to get old! Or to at least stop falling off.

She's a pretty amazing little horse. Even with just some light riding and regular lunging the last couple of weeks, her topline and general muscle tone are already noticeably improving.
