I had a baby 13 days ago, but I was itching to get back in the saddle so today I the new baby and the (nearly) two year old down for a nap and headed to the barn. Having my horse at a barn two minutes away from my house is a big plus in times like these. Both kids slept the entire time I was gone and my husband didn’t have to deal with either of them waking up and wanting Mommy.
Today was the first time I’ve ridden since March and I wasn’t sure how Baron would do. I thought he might be a little full of himself and trying to get away with some things but he was quite the opposite- very mellow and agreeable. God, I love that horse! We rode up and down the long dirt road and cantered a little to get him loosened up and then went back to the arena for some circles and trot work. Another boarder came back from a trail ride and came into the arena with us. Having some company was a nice change for Baron; usually it’s just me and him. I only rode for about half an hour, but it was great. He was ever so well behaved and I got to start getting back in shape!
Pictures coming soon!
