But it's not all bad news around here. Pammon did his first lesson last night! It was just a flat lesson since we're not cleared to jump yet. But we survived the full 45 minutes. Barely. But we did. He came out breathing fire, and though I was terrified, I didn't chicken out. Eventually he got a little tired and I was able to relax a little. The flat lessons are pretty intense. 45 minutes straight with no walking. Lots of transitions and a little lateral work. He was pretty confused by the counter canter, but once he picked it up he held it nicely. He felt good and sound this morning too. It's the hardest ride he's had since getting hurt so you never know... And I was really happy he felt good today. And he was very relaxed with zero spooks! So probably still a little tired. Ha. I'll take it.
Not too much else to report other than that I've been eating a lot of cheese.
Are you all "enjoying" rides on the winter versions of your horses? How many days till spring?
