We're going through a cold snap. The wind is gusting around 30-40 mph, and the irrigation canals were just filled this week. I tried to ride in the arena (really, I did) but i just couldn't. Instead, Cuna and i hacked down the busy road and headed out on the ditch bank.

He was so good. His version of 'wild' is to arch his neck a couple of times and take half a quick step. That's good, because the only thing that scares me more than hacking on paved roads is riding by deep running water.

Here's to a better tomorrow.


  1. Nice to know I'm not the only one who freaks about riding on pavement.

  2. Hate riding on pavement! Nice that you got to ride outside!

  3. Well, that trail along the bank looks really nice, except--and I am in agreement--for the water. With my guys I'd be worried about one big shy to the side and a very nasty swimming lesson. Not fond of pavement myself.

    Glad you got out of the arena for a ride, though.

    Love the dressage pictures. You are riding well and Cuna looks adorable--and pretty darn good in that trot lengthening.

  4. I hope your cold snap isn't as awful as ours! We had 75 degree sunshine on Thursday, and today it was below freezing, & snowing with high wind alerts! Weather.
