This morning I go out to do chores and as soon as I walk outside, she nickered, how cute that was. She was a little sad the other horses are so far away and probly pretty different from everywhere she has been before but she seems to be adjusting well. So after lunch today I thought I had better take her for a ride since it was absolutly beautiful out. So nice out I rode in a hoodie without a toque or gloves on and I was sweating!
I caught her easily and saddled her and of we walked out the yard no problem. I was a little nervous but she just walked where ever I asked her to go. I did ask her to trot for a short time but I was not relaxed so it was kinda awkward, but she never got upset so I was okay with that. I am really bad at riding alone outside cause I get bored real easy. In an arena I can always think of lots of things to do, but outside I just like to wander and visit unless there is actual work to do.
I even took a short video of her walking out there and I was not out very long, only about 30 minutes and even so I was pretty happy. Although yesterday they said they want to see her skinnier next time I come so she is on a kinda diet and I am gonna have to ride a little more to get her in shape too, but for a first ride in a strange place I was really happy with it.
Tomorrow Char is going for another lesson and not sure if I will go with her or try to talk Susan into coming out here and so we can go riding together, if its as warm as this I would certanly not mind going out for longer.
