Posting via iPhone Blogger for the first time.
Lessons were canceled yesterday due to the rain, but I went out anyway to drop off some feed. It was only a light drizzle, and I decided to tack up and see how the footing on the trail was (arenas were locked). I figured that it was an opportunity to see what Hemie thinks about riding in the rain.
He thinks its exciting. :)
Footing on the trails was okay over all, but the final hill coming down was a bit sloshy. Twice on the trail he tossed his head, so after getting back to the barn I put a rain sheet on him and put him in one of the sand turnouts. In the words of the barn manager, "That was the biggest buck I've ever seen! What a good horse for being a gentleman with you on the trail!"
Indeed. He proceeded to get as dirty as he could. Silly boy.
Hopefully these pictures come out!
