It was snowing today. And cold. But I’m sick of riding inside so outside we went. It actually went quite well. We played on the hills again, and got a nice workout in. Walk, trot, canter, and some gallop sets.

First outside ride of the spring! The sand ring is still a mess, but the giant grass field was almost completely dry. The best part is that it has the whole rolling hill thing going on, so it’s fantastic for hill work.

Kal was a gem. In a halter, first ride outside, spring weather….and she was just perfect. Could not have asked for a better ride. We did lots of trotting, and lots of cantering. No issues with the left lead, and we even had a few gallop sets up the bigger hill.

Kin and I went for a walk today. Around the driveway, up the path to the sand ring, through the sand ring, through the grass ring, to the giant grass field

Kin was calm, quiet, and took everything in stride (puddles, mud, snow, birds, etc.).

I let her off in the big field, and at first, she just followed me around. Then she realized there was a lot of grass to eat.
