A Fun Dilemma
I have a lesson scheduled for this coming Saturday. It will be my second lesson in three weeks, which is probably some sort of record for me since graduating from highschool years ago. Life is so much more expensive when I'm paying for it...
Anyways, the point is that Cathy gave me the option of riding three different horses, and I'm not sure which to choose.
1) Izzy. She my girl (obviously) and we both need lots of work. This is a good option.
2) Dart. He's Cathy's old horse and now he's quite the schoolmaster. He has competed through 4th level and he pulls like a train. It's an intense workout to ride him, but the skills don't necessarily translate well to Izzy because she's obviously not at his level. Still, It's good for me to have to work that hard.
3) Sasha. She's Cathy's current horse. She's second level schooling third, and I haven't ridden her since she was a baby learning how to steer. I think the where she's at might be more applicable to Izzy, but I'm just speculating.
In other news, I finally replaced my gloves and ordered a fleece girth through our local tack shop. I'm curious to see how Izzy likes the fleece.
