It is pretty sad when I consider 33 degrees warmer weather, but it’s true! I only put 3 layers on top and hauled my butt out to the barn last night!
I’ve been feeling a little tense about O’s hind end strangeness that has been peeking around this week. Like I’ve mentioned before, she’s not unsound…it’s just weird. Maybe she needs another chiro appointment. We’ll see what the trainers think this weekend. However, I was happy (relieved) last night though that she moved out considerably better and felt sound at the walk/trot and just a bit sore at the canter. I’m guessing a lot of this is just a horse being outside in the crappy snowy weather. Hopefully pony feels 100% this weekend so we can lesson.
Side note: I obsessively watch the Olympics. Any event minus hockey (which I cannot stand to watch on TV for some reason). The next time people give me the “you’re crazy” look about riding I’m going to point out that there are way more insane sports out there than equestrian! I feel like a giant wuss compared to most of these people.
Anyway, Go USA!
It’s supposed to be almost 50 degrees this weekend. I feel the urge to whip out a t-shirt or something crazy. Woohoo!
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
