ICP Ride

Got to the barn to ride last night, and was told by the barn staff that my trainer had ridden him already that day.  We're holding a pretty big ICP clinic at the barn all week - it's where trainers who want to become USEA certified get judged on how well they teach lessons and also on theory.  I guess they needed someone to ride for something, probably a mock lesson, and my trainer rode Connor.

I was totally cool with that, even though I didn't know about it in advance.  Darn, a way better rider than me rode him in front of other professionals who know what they're doing?  And I won't get charged for a trainer ride?  Such a bummer. /s

Instead, I picked out his tail while he slept in the crossties:

Those are some sleepy ears.
And he got way more cookies than he should have.  Honestly, still a pretty good night, even if I didn't get to ride myself.


  1. Sweet! I hope you get a good trainer recap!

  2. Free training rides are the BEST!

  3. Free training rides are amazing and such a great opportunity to bond with your pony :)

  4. That's cool! Free is always good :)

  5. Free & trainer rode are two words rarely seen in the same sentence, win-win 👍
