Icy Goodness

After giving my horse the last 4-5 days off I probably should’ve been more prepared for the spootacular show that O put on last night. The biggest of her issues having to do with the little pile of ice that somehow ended up in the indoor ring. It was well out of the way of us 99% of the time, but she knew for a fact that it was actually there to eat her.

This is what O saw.

So grateful that she’s an honest spooker and really didn’t go anywhere but up when we went by it. There was one pretty significant one in there, but really she was just very aware of the ice…and felt like she was about 18hh tall.

Just a bit more UP than usual.

Eventually after doing about 15 figure eights around it, she decided it was harmless and went to go stand with it at the end of our ride. What a goober.

What the ice really looked like...

The rest of the ride was awesome, she was feeling forward, responsive, and had some nice bending (minus some intial stiffness to the left). After so many days off I was very happy with my fuzzy girl. Back to her hay bale she goes!
