First Ride, All Good

crazymaneThoughts running through my head:

Whoa my horse is narrow

Oh yes this is the awesome trot I remember

Are you going to spook at the crazy-painted skinny? Not really? Cool.

Jeez that was a really good walk to canter transition

Good thing I am my horse’s only rider because he is, like, completely perfect and no one else needs to know that

bestcolorSo as you may now imagine, the first brief ride after about six weeks off went really well, despite the day’s blusteriness. Tonight will be the first ride under the lights.

maskThe current set-up is Eli’s hunter bridle sans-noseband, an ergonomic bit, and a riding fly mask. He’s still got gauze packed in his face and will be getting the sinus flushed for about another week, so the rides will be short and not intense. Not sure when we’ll be jumping again, but just sitting on this horse was such a treat, so I’ll try to be patient a little while longer.
