Whenever Summer comes along, the wheels kinda fall off the blogging wagon. This year is no different, especially since I am neck-deep in a particularly difficult school course at the moment and any spare computer time is spent researching and reading vs blogging.
It is kind of the nature of the beast tho. The days are longer and warmer, and more time is spent at the barn (not that I'm complaining!) and sometimes, divulging a recap in late summer trail rides or yet another schooling session doesn't make for very interesting blogging fodder, esp with lack of media!
C'est la vie, though.
I am hoping that once this course is completed (two more weeks!) that things will get better and soon enough I'll be able to return to our regularly scheduled programming.
For now tho, you'll have to enjoy the few photos I have from the past two weeks of silence (fear not, I have a clinic recap from this past weekend coming soon!).
|More grazing - lucky girl!|
|Post-schooling ride. Bannie worked hard in this ride, mostly because she|
decided cross-firing was easier than just cantering 15m circles.
|Our Farrier appointment went well - she was really well behaved.|
The farrier made a comment that I have been riding a lot, because
her shoes were quite thin in some sections, haha.
|This schooling ride featured more poor decisions re: cantering, but a lot|
less #feelings. I was pretty pleased with her, actually.
|We got a new pad... what else is new, haha. Except, I won this one in a contest|
from Trainer K. We were pretty #matchymatchy on our trail ride.
|Speaking of which, we went for a nice long trail ride with V and Geronimo again.|
It was a good ride and the horses were really well behaved.
|The trail featured some sink holes - there is a second hole|
at the upper right corner. It was kinda sketchy, but we made it!
|Of course, Spud has been getting out lots too!|
|Mugging me for treats.|
Sidenote, I am not impressed with this muzzle - it has
already started to fall apart and I've used it for maybe...
3 months now. I'm gearing up to order the Green Guard.
|We did one last schooling ride before our clinic this past weekend.|
Surprisingly, Bannie was pleasant enough to ride and had
absolutely 0 canter hysterics. She was also verrrry lazy this ride.
|She was let out to graze after our ride last Friday, and spent|
more time trying to nap than eat.
