Well, it was 103 degrees today and it is the end of September...go figure. Sarah and I did practiced our routine early this morning for the upcoming Hoedown and it went well. We switched horses..I rode Rocky and she rode Bueller. They are visually very closely matched chestnuts but different temperaments. Rocky ( no salt) is forward ,coming from lead horse in the "hunt" world and Bueller is the totally layed back type! Sarah got him moving well with the use of spurs and a strong leg.... aids unfortunately I can't give him.
My boy Pan, was a bit antsy..wanting to go for a ride, too. So despite the heat..we donned the saddle and made the rounds so he could whinny are all his buds. He so enjoys our rides, I told myself I didn't even feel the blazing sun! Afterwards, he was much more content to just settle into his stall. I left him happily munching hay next to his special girl, Fiona. Let's hope tomorrow is cooler.
