Yesterday afternoon was perfect - after riding in the outdoor dressage arena, I walked Riva out around the pond on the property. And the best part...my husband joined me on Cheers our OTTB :) Cheers has been living the semi-retired life the past couple of years, but that is coming to an end. I look forward to many more rides with my two 'guys' before the snow flies.
I decided at our saddle fitting appointment last Friday to quit riding Riva in the Kieffer and ride bareback, borrow a better fitting saddle, do lots of groundwork, until I can order her County...and then it will take 12 weeks to arrive. I am blessed with kind barn owners - they offered for me to use a couple of different saddles until Riva has her own. So - looks like I can get back to regular dressage lessons :)
Cheers and Lex - maybe 5 years ago?
