Connor Vacation

Connor is just wrapping up a 10 day vacation in which I did absolutely nothing with him. I had been thinking I wanted to give him this time off for a while, but it ended up being the right decision for all kinds of reasons.

Except last night's lesson, which I kept because why not, and did not intend to ride him that hard, but he just could not even at the canter, so...not my fault he got sweaty, lol. Luckily, and remarkably, it's still warm enough to hose him off after rides right now!

Such as:

  • Starting a new job (at the same company) that's very different from my old one
  • Feeling like without mirrors and experienced eyes on the ground I couldn't possibly make more progress in the clearly very important biomechanics discoveries we figured out at my last lesson
  • Feeling like wtf am I going to improve on this horse by myself that she won't do over the next 10 weeks?
  • Getting ready for the Welsh show and bringing Disco home

Heaven? No, just sunrise at my barn

So it's been pretty quiet on the horse news front, but tomorrow is going to be very exciting, as Leah is coming to stay the weekend with me, and I get to show Disco in-hand for the first time Friday morning! I won't have a post tomorrow, but look for some exciting baby pony content next week.

I love you already <3

    1. Ya if you're wondering why I haven't gotten back to your latest email, lol...

  3. I would counter your comment about not accomplishing anything solo. You would and you have proven that. On the other hand, you both have been working hard and having a break is a great idea.

    The Welsh show sounds like a blast! I bet Disco is going to turn some heads!

  4. Congrats on the new job!
    I cannot wait for all the Disco content!
