A combination of truly horrendous weather, more work than I expected, things going a bit wrong, and other priorities meant just getting the chores done was where it was at for me. This is the first time I've had even a few days off riding in ages, let alone an entire week! Although truthfully if I had prioritized things differently I might have found time. I know I spend too much time grooming and being fussy about the cleanliness of their stalls and buckets :)

I've caught a bit of the flu as of this morning, so no riding today, either. I've been rereading some of my favorite baby horse training books instead. Sovie is still quite young and teeny tiny, so we obviously won't be starting her under saddle this year or likely even next, but there's no reason she can't learn to ground drive later this summer.
As for Bridget's plans this year, I'm still on a time out to think. My personal goals remain the same, but my goals for Bridget are being reevaluated. I've made a few decisions and had a couple of good talks with the right people, but I'll recap those next time. I can confirm that we're planning on having fun by attending a local gymkhana day in a couple of weeks. Eek!
