|I fell in love with another grey mare.
Because that’s totally unexpected…
My “horses I have available to ride” got expanded by one today when I rode Stephanie’s new mare Kasha on our training ride. This mare is awesome…I cannot wait to ride her at Prescott. “Kash” (pronounced more like “kosh” versus “cash”) comes out of a show/arena training background, so just my kind of horse. I mean, we’re blasting along up a sand wash at a fast canter, and she’s offering up flying lead changes around the turns.
Love, love, love.
|At least everyone else’s horses have good manes.
Makes it easier to ignore the pony’s pitiful one.
Looks like I’ll get the chance to ride her one of the days of Prescott next month.
|Very well-trained, but still “trail green” and has to look at
things like dead cactus and downed logs. And unexpected
picnic tables and random benches in the middle of nowhere.
We did about 10 miles today, trotting and cantering whenever we could to meet our time deadline. I did a lousy job of keeping track, but I think we were done in about an hour and half, possibly less. Tons of fun, though, and this mare is solid. Completely trustworthy and I felt totally comfortable jumping on her back and asking for a speed workout.
