In other non-exciting news, I DID try and get the solo shot working this weekend, but unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work. Everything seems to be setting up correctly, but it's not reading the tracker. I only had so much time to dedicate to tinkering, but I'll keep at it. I'm sure it will work eventually!
It wasn't the most exciting week (other than Monday night) but it was pretty busy. Friday morning my helper had off and my back up worker wasn't available so I took the morning off work and did the barn myself. It was a beautiful day, so it was nice to skip work and hang with the ponies for a bit! Admittedly though, it was super hard to go into work for the second half of the day. I did it though! (Pats self on back.)
The weekend was busy! Pia had her annual vet visit Saturday morning at 8:20, and Artie came along to get his nails trimmed.
|It was a little too early for Pia.|
|Though Eros might disagree.|
|I even walked Pammon out in the yard a little!|
I spent the rest of Saturday running errands. I replaced the box fans in the barn and maybe stopped at Ben and Jerry's for sustenance.
|it was hot out! What can I say?|
Sunday morning I had a 9:15 lesson with Eros. I tried a new bit. It's a knock off of the Neue Schule trans angled pelham. I think it's the best one so far! He doesn't flat that well in it, but I did have more control after the jumps. Not total control mind you... but more at least! That horse gets STRONG sometimes! He's kind of a bad horse for me because I love to pull and he requires a fair amount of that... I mean, it's nice team work right! Haha! But he's not helping me fix my bad habits. He was great though, and I felt like it was a good lesson.

My good neighbor (who lessons with me!) and I stopped at the farmer's market after our lesson. But we were so late almost everything was gone. I got some cheese and bread though, so all was not lost.
And then it was time to ride! Again! There was a threat of heavy storms, but the skies were still clear, so I figured we should be alright. I did Pammon first. We had a great ride, and even added in some canter poles.
Once everyone was fed, I headed over to the lake. It turned into a gorgeous evening. The humidity had lifted and the temps had dropped into the high 70's.
I had my lobster roll and listened to some tunes.
How was your week/weekend? Do anything fun and exciting? Horse show? Lesson? Something non horse related? Tell me all about it in the comments!
