With water pouring off my helmet and into Splash's eyes, we worked on canter departs and walk/walk transitions using the twisted wire snaffle. Good News! No dust in the arena!
Splash was a pretty good boy so we went to the trailer to un-tack. Splash was SOAKED and so was I, but it was warmish so I decided a bath was in order. Then, I gave Pico an iodine/vinegar bath for his blotchy hair coat. By then it was dark so Sunny escaped water torture. THEN..... the show was cancelled because of rain.
We received two waves of heavy rain in the early hours both Saturday and Sunday morning. The Wild O Ranch arena was sloppy so no riding here. I met my horsey friends for lunch on Saturday and took Splash with Sunny and Alaina to DiAmico Performance Horses' indoor arena and worked Splash while Alaina had a western/trail lesson Sunday afternoon.
So, this week I will be able to join the YaYa Sisters at Rita's on Wednesday and the girls have a ride night on Thursday as well as a 4-H show next Sunday. But the fly in my ointment is the state 4-H Horse Judging contest on Saturday so no riding for me next weekend.
At least we have April Flowers from April Showers.
No Rain - No Rainbow.
