a jaunt in the field
Boy, oh boy.
Yesterday was my 25th birthday and I dragged Kenny to the barn with me to take some photos. I decided to switch it up a bit and ride Lucy in the field.
She was mega-fresh. I kind of expected that, but I had hoped the birthday gods would shine down on me and magically make the pony behave for just one ride.
Hahahahahahah, I know, I know. Crazy!
So she was kind of an idiot from start to finish, but I persevered and eventually got a couple of really nice canters from her, which I was VERY happy with because historically she has had a hard time keeping her brain in her head when cantering in a wide-open space.
When you have a young, athletic, opinionated horse, you learn to look hard for positives lol. So those canters were the highlight of the ride for me and she got lots of praise.
Here are some photos:
It's his birthday today! So it has been a very fun birthday weekend for both of us.
