Somehow Christie and I decided that Sundays should be a no stirrup day for us. She also specified that I must do no stirrups on Stampede, just to keep things fair. So yesterday was our first no stirrup Sunday. The day dawned cloudy and rainy and the indoor footing wasn’t ready yet. So we
womanned up and went for a ride in the light rain.
Ten minutes of trot work alternating between posting and sitting each lap and a few laps each way of canter found the horses happy about their easy workouts and the humans slightly damp from the rain and feeling the burn.
Mr. P had an easy day. A quick grooming and some stretches followed by a little grass eating.
I plan to ride P tonight and take a lesson on Stampy Tuesday. If all goes well we will be doing some real jumping.
