Johnny Cash and I wish you the happiest of holiday seasons!
He is so tolerant of my schenanigans!
It was 80 degrees here yesterday. I wore a light t-shirt to ride and we were both sweaty when our ride was over.
Then about 8 last night the wind started to blow and the temp dropped to 55 with wind chills in the 30's.
What gives? I have been trying to find the holiday spirit but its hard in Florida when its 85 degrees, hot and humid while your putting up the tree!
This morning I dug out the warm jods and thermal shirts. Took us 45 minutes to warm up and break a sweat.
Breeze was still very cool after our ride, so I threw on his cooler and let him have some hay.
Our rides have not been fantastic since we got home from the show. I am never 100% sure of myself and that I am asking correctly so I let him get away with a lot of stuff.
I have a lesson on Sam next week. She is worth her weight in gold as a lesson horse and does not respond unless I am asking her correctly! I always leave my lessons on her feeling more assured and usually go right home and ride Cash, trying to apply the same aids and get a correct response.
I can see continuing lessons on her for a long long time!
