Play Date, Coaching and Riding Fun!

Our play group had a wonderful evening . We played with 7 of our friend's horses this evening. I was primarily playing and helping others accomplish tasks, understand the games, and having fun. I love this group and the more effort I put in, the more I get out, outstanding!

I was also offered and took the chance to ride one of the horses. It has literally been months since I have truly ridden. We simply worked on walk/trot transitions in the pushing passenger position, carrot-stick riding, direct and indirect rein, etc. I had such a great time! I also felt a bit sad, remembering that this was what Whiskey and I were getting so go at before we moved. Ity is a motivation to get back in shape, and also an affirmation that my balance is still intact!

The horses are still adjusting and so am I really. This morning, I felt a tad frustrated with Whiskey who was acting right-brained and impulsive. But, I have also been over tired. When I came home this evening after the play date, I fed the horses and did not have those feelings and he (and the others) were just fine. Horses CAN read us! LOL
