|Fear not, more fries were coming!|
I didn't really make any plans for the long weekend, and it was nice to actually get stuff done at home. I put a few new bracelets together:
Sunday was rainy and not hot.
But the BEST part of my weekend came on Monday. I got to RIDE! My awesome friend Katie (as I mentioned yesterday) offered to share her horse Bradley with me. She's going to be traveling some, and said she'd love it if I could ride him while she's away. Works out great for both of us, but mostly for me because I REALLY miss being in the saddle. I thought it was a bummer the last couple of years not being able to show, but as it turns out, not riding at all is a whole lot harder. We decided to meet up Monday so I could ride him with her there the first time. That way I could find all her stuff, and make sure I'm doing things the way she likes with her horse.
Bradley is a 17.3 hand Danish Warmblood. It's quite a stretch for me to get his saddle on! And you know... get on. But once you're up there, he doesn't feel THAT big. He's definitely long, but he's not overly round, so I can get my leg around him kind of.
You guys. I had SO MUCH FUN! I had a little bit of a tough time with my asthma so had to take a few walk breaks, and it wasn't a very long ride. But it was amazing in every way. PLUS, Katie took a bunch of photos.
He is not quite done with this episode yet though, which is not the best news. So we have to keep up with the Banamine and the icing for a while longer. My vet is feeling very positive with how he's walking though, and thinks we're on the right path. More waiting until we're out of the woods, but I think we're approaching the edge of the forest at least.
That's what's up this Wednesday! What's up with you? How are your horses doing? Any shows coming up? Do any fun things for the long weekend?
