|Pony shows no remorse.|
Now, what - exactly, went wrong, you ask?
Excelent question. Today was a balmy 30 degrees, the snow was glistening and the sun was almost unbearably shiny. That may be where everything went wrong. It was simply too nice of a day. And Delight wanted to change that.
It was a good plan.
It didn't work. At all.
The upwards half halt worked. Too well. Delight reared. I spanked. She leaped She bucked. And bucked again. And again. Then veered a sharp left.
And I ate it. Hard.
So we finished the ride with 45 minutes of lunging. Trot. Canter. Trot. Canter. Trot. Canter. Rinse and repeat until you have a sweaty, tired, obedient pony.

|Practicing, again? Really?|
|That's right you go back to your hay.|
|Happy pony poses by her bridge.|
