Into our temporary accommodations for the week! Fingers crossed, they settled in just fine. Ginger even remembers the area and seems happy to visit the old 'hood.
In keeping with our drama theme this week, there were questions over who was trailering who (and with who and when) so I opted to stay out of it and find my own way. It's only about 8 miles barn to barn through a fairly direct hydro easement, so not a huge ride really, when one has the time. I was planning to ride one and pony the other, but G wanted to come along for the walk and I felt mean riding while he walked, so we both ended up just walking the horses over. I would sound so dedicated if I said I walked my horses for 3 hours to get to a clinic, but seriously it was a beautiful day, the trails were dry, and we were all happy to get out for some exercise. I'm extra glad I didn't book any trailering!
It was a nice afternoon well spent. We made Bridget pack lunch and stopped lakeside for a picnic. When we arrived at the barn we're staying at, there were two big side by side paddocks available for the girls. They happily settled in for dinner and seemed really relaxed - no running or calling even when the resident horses got a little excited about the newcomers. Trailering them over would have certainly been more time efficient and better practice for an away show, but call me crazy, I'd walk them again anytime.
Actual riding and pictures tomorrow, I promise.
