Cash and I started off our weekend with a great evening! First, he got a hoof trim and had his front shoes reset. I opted to keep his back hooves bare since there is minimal chipping despite all the riding we do.
After his hooves were all spiffed up, we headed out for a ride. The evening cooled off to a perfect temperature. We rode down the creek farther than we ever have. Instead of turning around and going out where we came in, I decided to see how Cash would handle the bank. I found the lowest spot and he walked up it like it was nothing! We’ll definitely be looking for new challenges on the next ride.
“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and how you do it.”
After that, we did some trot and canter work along a ditch that runs through a field. His trot has slowed enough to be comfortable, and he no longer tries to sprint when I ask him to lope. Every ride shows more progress and it makes my heart happy.
The ride was just under 4 miles total. I couldn’t have asked for a better ride or more beautiful scenery. Enjoy a few of the views we saw!
Until next time,
