Horses, Life, A Touch of Geek

Driving Thursday

My first experience as a navigator was with Lyricc.

We had a blast. Lyricc is fleet-footed and nimble. She scoots.

Bliss, on the other hoof, roars. The first time Bliss powered down the long side of the arena, I was suddenly acutely aware that the only thing keeping me inside the cart was my grip on the bar in front of me.

As soon as we were done with the lesson, I asked about new gloves. I had been wearing basic black leather show gloves. The kind every rider has pair or two of. Now, I wanted as much grip as I could get. Coach Kate recommended SSG All Weather Gloves.

Why pink? Why not? Blue would just get lost among all the other blue gear at Whip Hand Farm. Purchased from Carousel Tack Shoppe.

They worked great.
