I worked Splash again on Monday evening in the last (hopefully) blast of summer heat. He was showing some attitude but I was using the GNS to make sure he didn't give me that head shake thing since lounging is still out. I am trying to minimize sharp turns and taking it easy bringing Splash back into training.
No lesson for me on Sat. since I signed up for the OSU Horse Owners Symposium in Stillwater. Cross fingers for a lesson on Labor Day weekend. My yaya's are planning a ride this Thursday since high temps are predicted in the 80's but I will be at a back to school night. I will try to drop by for social hour..... Cross fingers for lots of fall riding opportunities coming soon.

I didn't ride my horse last week. But I did get to sweat at a horse show. The temperatures were in triple digits all week and I just didn't have the intestinal fortitude. But, I did get to eat and socialize with my friends at El Azteca Wed night even if it was to hot to ride. Friday morning I took Sunny to Dr. S to remove those pesky nose stitches. With a little sedation, we removed a few stitches but will wait until next Wed. to get the rest.
