Things have finally dried out enough around here that I was able to ride my horse TWO WHOLE DAYS IN A ROW. Eli was slightly fresh both days, but not too unmanageable.
Last night, especially, the left lead canter showed up as a flashing neon WEAKNESS.
Ugh. Sorry, Eli. So we have that to get sorted out in our flat work.
Maybe if I can actually ride him 3 or 4 days in a row, we will. My hope is that he can come back into decent flat work quickly. Maybe we will even get to jump a little this weekend?
The other monkey wrench in the works is my job, which will require me to work some late and a handful of very late nights, starting today. Not super excited about that. I am not sure that I will be able to ride tonight, which will be a disappointment if I can’t, but hopefully I can ride on Wednesday and Thursday.
