It hasn't rained in like 4 days... I think that's a record for 2010 so far here. Saturday, my friends came out to ride. We only had two treeless saddles for the three of us, so we all went bareback. It was quite fun, until the neighbors started flying around a remote-control plane. Even that was ok, until the neighborhood dogs went nuts barking at it. Miss Izzy has a thing about dogs, so she cantered sideways all the way across the arena.
It was pretty hilarious and not that hard to ride. I wonder if I can replicate that move at a show... I'm thinking not.
I'm gambling that despite the current outside temperature of 20f, the clear skies mean that it will be warm enough to ride outside in the afternoon today. Cross your fingers for me.
