Jesus, Where have you been?!?!?!?
I swear, I have a great excuse for being MIA for nearly half a month!
It had better be... otherwise I'm going to unfollow this trainwreck.
And I don't really have a great excuse. I have lots of little pathetic excuses. I had an interview. I've really upped my lesson schedule. My life has been boring and grey. All I do is work in an indoor.... Nothing post worthy has happened in two weeks.
Annnnnd.... that's really it. Sorry 'bout that.
Oh yeah, and I haven't gotten any decent pictures and- let's face it- the pictures are the only redeeming features of this blog.
|Can you spot the poodle?|
|In related news, I might have lost a tennis ball.|
Good news is that Bacon was thwarted.
Bad news is that so was Tempi.
Lord knows how many tennis balls I'll find out there come spring. Whoops.
So I was off to the barn!
|Tilly has a new saddle.Dapper, no?|
(there is a bridle on the way too...
don't worry we'll do a photo shoot)
It didn't work... But while Deli was chewing, Tilly and I made our escape, and off to work we went.
Today wasn't her finest day. After two days off, Tilly was distracted and let's just say that the 'submission' and 'harmony between horse and rider' scores would have both been lacking, had this been a show. I bought the Tillner a new saddle at the local tack swap that I attended recently. It's an aged brown dressage saddle, but I recognized the brand (which, of course I am now drawing a blank on), and for $100, it's now mine.
And luckily, it fits the Tillner like a glove! Finally I can ride her without a half pad.
|'get this sweat OFF of me!'|
|'You can't see me....' Says the Lurker Pony|
Bravo Pony, Bravo.
|Immediately after this shot, Delight rolled all the way over.|
And kicked Tilly.
Both mares were shocked.
So have I mentioned that it was sunny outside?
And I've been stuck in the indoor for way too long?
Well, even though it was less than ideal, I was bound and determined that I was going to take RC outside on a trailride. I mean, I rode Delight out through the snow in January, right? And RC is a calm aged cow pony. We should be able to hang...
So did RC an I. We went from belly deep to shoulder deep in one stride.. then had to use London's trademark porpoise leap to get us back to solid ground.
Whoops, sorry there buddy.
