How to Ride During the Late Winter Storm
On Monday, I got off a bit early and we loaded Sister, Pico and Splash and went to Patty's. I lounged Sister and she was so responsive that I ALMOST got the nerve to ride. But Patty wasn't there to help if I needed it so, since... Retreat is the better part of valor, I saddled Splash and worked him instead. Ivy rode Pico bareback (she had an ankle injury and didn't want to put on boots) and Alaina took a spin on Jetter. Alaina loves Jetter since he reminds her of Dezzie-Doo. We left Sister in Patty's capable hands.
Ruthie wanted a chance to ride Pico before the Lily Pond show so she and Jean came out Friday morning. I worked Splash and walked around on Pico, Alaina rode Sunny and Diez, Ivy worked Pico and had a quick ride on Splash, and Ruthie rode Pico and played around on Diez. Very fun.
Then the Lily Pond dressage and FFA shows were cancelled.
