1st Ride of the Year

On Sunday it was so nice out I had to go riding.  I took Jess and saddled her in my barrel saddle and off we went out to the pasture.  She is feeling good wanted to trot the whole time crazy girl.  But I made her walk most of it.  The snow was quite deep in some places and she had to work fairly hard.

After a bit she was wanting to go back.  So back we did to the arena.  Haha.  Her buddies are right across from there so everyone can see everyone else.  Razz was calling the whole time we were gone, she's not like that.  Afterwards I realized all 3 mares were in heat, ugh.

(Jess's favorite part of the ride lol)

(pretty fun app, tracks time and I can write what we did)

But in the arena fresh snow just calls for something to be done so after a couple outside laps I wrote Jessie's name in the snow.  How fun!  I don't know how to dot the I but that's OK.  Sure was a fun afternoon.  I was exhausted after too from walking in the deep snow.

Cant wait to go again, yesterday was cold and today I am going swimming and its warm out but a chinook wind and I don't like wind so maybe tomorrow.

Yay for the first ride! That's fun writing in the snow. I'm doing a 100 day challenge too, although it can be ground work or riding.
