Between the cold snap … [Polar Vortex 2022]

… and spending our days at the vet clinic, [The Poop Emoji]

we squeezed in a few lessons at Stepping Stone Farm.

Landen, Wednesday. Regardless of how long it’s been since I’ve ridden hunter/jumper/dressage/eventing, If I haven’t ridden saddle seat, I revert to hunter/jumper/etc.

Bubba, Friday. Got a report that he had been rude to his riders lately.

Me: We aren’t doing any of that today, are we?
Bubba: No, Ma’am.

Some horses you just get. Mind you, we broke at the canter in both shows last year, and I still had trouble keeping him cantering in the first direction, so no relationship is perfect. TBH, I lost the canter at three out of the four shows last year, with two different horses, so it’s not all Bubba. Which is weird because cantering is usually what I do well. But I digress.

Also on Friday, Greg drove Optimus. Gave him a chance to enjoy a drama-free drive. Milton has been great about pivoting to driving horse, but the past is always lurking. No media. Completely forgot.

Onwards!

  1. Glad to hear that you are riding in spite of the weather and vet visits. When life goes sideways, I find that normal stuff keeps me balanced.
