I imagine that all barns have a ‘quiet’ time when there seems to be less horses and less crazy happening. Since I work 8-5, I rarely get to enjoy these moments. Somehow this Sunday I got to the stable before anyone else, and was able to lavish attention on, groom and tack up before another soul showed up. Well minus this guy…he was obviously a bit lost.
Anyway, I was able to hop on with another adult rider and get my walk/trot work in before the crazy started. O was quiet, lazy in the humidity and seemingly sound! I pushed her a bit more today, and now we’ll see how she recovers tomorrow. Overall, she feels good, but I will say the time off has made her a little sour towards “hard” work, so I definitely got my exercise too!
