The horses were all feeling good, and both of mine were waiting at the fence looking like they wanted to get out and do something.
|No, pick me!|
|Ginger looking for trouble|
I'm taking her to my lesson tomorrow, fingers crossed it goes well and I get some more useful input re: her quirks.
|Big mare broke a sweat. Yes, I use a neck strap on her. Don't judge ;)|
Bridget came out second, and there was much torture involved getting her walk out. It's way too hard leaving the barn, she says, and getting her to move out properly involves much groaning and sighing on her part and a bit of effort on mine. I persuaded her to trot part of the big hill alongside the road. Poor pony thought she might die. We just went out for about an hour hack and while she was dragging her butt on the way out, of course she did liven up on the way home. I took advantage of that and got some decent trot and canter work in. She earned her keep by not freaking out when 3 separate dogs tried to chase us along the way. I guess the dogs were feeling good today too? I've never seen any of them before today and I ride the same route multiple times a week.
|I should put a pic of Bridget here, but I didn't take one. Instead you get Ginger ears in the ring|
Too bad I can't somehow cross Bridget's street smarts with Ginger's love of working, Then I'd have the pony to rule them all ;)
|I'll leave you with a pic of baby kitty and his valentine friend.|
