Not your average OTTB given another chance at a new life and a mostly average busy Mom who never gave up on her dream to ride again. An unlikely pair at an unlikely time, learning to event and loving life!
I am struggling to find the motivation to get out there in the cold to ride. I have been ok up until this point but I have struggled since I got back from our trip. I am hoping it is just a phase. We got a good 5 inches of snow today. I left the horses out most of the day. I brought them in about an hour or two earlier than normal. They had gotten snowed on all day and were kind of wet and had some ice on them. I decided to put Steadys cooler on him to help hold in some heat. Then standing there talking to him I couldn't help myself but to jump on and take a trip around the property. I am glad I did though Steady is probably the most uncomfortable horse to ever get on bareback so there is very little relaxation for me cause I am getting a spine wedgie the entire time. I think next time I will choose Moonlight. He is a round boy and he is gaited so even easier. I can't say Steady was real thrilled but I did manage to get a couple pictures. Once back in his stall I took off the cooler and fed everybody their dinner. Then got back inside where it is warm.
Thats my pretty boy
He was not at all thrilled that I kept walking away but then kept telling him not to move.
"Uh Ma I am not really getting the point here. Are we walking or not?"
