Keepin' On

I finally got out to see this cute mug on Saturday.

Cuuuuuuute mug.

The ride wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be after being gone that long, but there was definitely an element of "Make me."  It wasn't temper-tantrum level "MAKE ME!" but more of a "You'll have pull whatever you're asking for out of my soft fuzzy (seriously, winter?  already?) body, woman."

I stayed annoyingly persistent in what I was asking, conscious all the time that my own riding probably wasn't great after that long of a break and no lessons, and was fair and patient.  He eventually came around.  If that one lesson two weeks ago was an 8 trot, we ended up with a 6.  Balanced, even, through, not mind-blowing, but good.

He's charitable to his barn mates in addition to being cute.

My schedule this week is pretty full, so I won't get a ton of riding in, and then my trainer is back, so these two weeks are ending up as kind of a nice mini-vacation heading into indoor arena purgatory.  My 7pm outdoor lessons are numbered.

So much fuzzier than when I left...

  4. I'm sort half looking forward to winter because we make such great gains in those quiet, lonely evenings.

    But I'm a dork.

    1. I AM SO NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT HAVING AN INDOOR, but I tend to make less gains in there because the fancy footing broke down prematurely/manufacturer will not help us, so it's really deep and shifty especially for a pony. That plus being small Dressage court sized means Connor tends to lack impulsion when we're in there. So, I am grateful to have an indoor, but it does cause its share of training issues.

  6. I've noticed that it's getting dark faster on my barn trips - or maybe I'm just staying later haha. But I'm not ready for the cold weather and lack of daylight!
