4 Sleeps To Go

I rode Dakota yesterday. Or tried to. Basically the conclusion was never riding him in something other than my Courbette dressage saddle and never without a flash band to hold his mouth shut. Will try riding him again this week - not much else to add after such a frustrating ride.

Echo is well... Echo. She's developed a hatred of being fly sprayed. Which I just see as a challenge because I won't let her get away with it. Bringing her in this morning she had to stop every 5 feet to itch. *sigh*

Only 4 sleep's to go until I get to sleep in my own bed!!! Yay. My back and every other joint in my body won't know how to act. Cannot wait. Hopefully this will mean better rest = more energy to ride and train.


  1. Yay about your own bed, hope the horsies behave better next ride. Nancy had her first encounter with fly spray the other evening and was less than impressed with it - which is weird as she has no problem with my spraying her tail to be able to brush it...although then again she wasn't overly enamoured with showering after heavy sweating or having her feet cleaned daily (still not overly fond of this) - but like the guy facing the locked gate...she's just going to have to get over it. As We are doing things my way! :D

  2. Hoping you are sleeping in your own bed now!
