(Strange) Love, Sweat and Horsies...
Ok, this may be a Horsie night, but we so have to start here, with Bengals. I believe we are going to have to consult Marilyn, the cat coach, for an exact explanation for this, but I am calling it "What the heck?????????"
Aww...It's Rommy thinking "Is this a carrot I see before me??"
I rode English tonight, which was at first, somewhat daunting, it's a whole different thing, and there is a lot less of it, but it all came back to me, and it is SO much easier than Western riding. It's almost like, if you can completely relax, you could float there forever. You can float for a long time, but walking on post-float jelly legs is not easy.
The action shots didn't turn out so well tonight, we will wait till Miss Kitty comes out for those, but Melissa did figure out the florescent lighting setting, which seemed to help quite a bit.
I like to call this the "It is really goofy to be hot and sweaty and cleaning up an even hotter and sweatier horse and have someone taking pictures of you that you know will shortly be seen around the world" shot.
And yet ANOTHER new and useful skill I have learned! I don't know why one uses them, or what they are called but I can now put on and take off leg wrap bandagy thingies!
I love this horse. I love the people there at the stable. I love riding. I am going to get fit, and learn to do this really well. I love this hair-do more than the day I got it.
I worked hard for it tonight.
Love and Sweat,
