I rode today! I was feeling great, the weather was perfect, and given Amanda's perfect rides this week, I felt confident that Lucy would be a good girl. I was right. Even though all the time out of the saddle really took its toll on my strength, and I was all over the place, Lucy trucked right along and was seriously the best girl.
Maddy coached me through the ride a bit (mostly just saying "sit up!" lol...old habits die hard!) and then Amanda rode after me, and reported that Lu was a very good girl for her, too.
I was pretty sore when I got home, but I'm so happy I rode. Kenny and Hannah came along and hung out by the side of the ring. It was very nice to have them both there.
Tomorrow is Spring Shots, round 1, and if the vet comes out later in the day, I'll ride first. If they end up coming out early, I probably won't get there with time to ride. It's amazing how much time caring for the baby takes in the morning.
