Distracted Day

Riding

First Day

Had an interview later that day.

Rode on autopilot.

Rodney does not appreciate autopilot. [A Small Hop Forward]

By the end of the ride, he was staring about and startling at small noises.

Next Day

Me, to me: Okay, my horse does not like being out here alone.

Switch off autopilot.

Make a concerted effort to …

… Show an interest in all work being done.

… Maintain a close dialogue on the style and pace of every step.

Rodney: (fuss, fuss)

Me: Hey, you wanted an involved rider.

Rodney: (mumble, mumble)

Stay safe. Stay sane.
