|This post brought to you by relaxing ponies.|
Tuesday was that magical day every spring where the mares all get turned out into the big field for the next few months. Many horse shenanigans ensued, and by the time I got off work and popped in the saddle, pony felt pretty tired. We did a quick warm up and popped over a couple of jumps before just calling it good and going for an easy hack. Midge was honest about being forward and going to the jumps, but I could feel her heart wasn't really in it.

Thursday, we did a short dressage school where the pony felt wonderful. We followed that with 2 short jump courses, fences ranging from 2' to 2'6. Zero issues there, I think we both felt it was tiny and easy compared to what we saw last weekend :)

Today, she will have another day off, because tomorrow we have a schooling show and the pony will need energy to jump multiple rounds. We've also got a dressage lesson Sunday, so another busy weekend for Ms B!
|Just can't even.|
Why we're tired, in numbers: Last week, we traveled twice as far as a normal week, clocking 10 hours in the saddle and 114km. Even with our lazy days, this week also comes in above average due to the past weekend with 6 hours and 62 km. Virtual adventures weeks 15 and 16 have been added accordingly!
