Cold and Colder

It was a three-ride day, and I'm tired this evening, so this will be a short post.

We had a spot of snow this morning and the temperature has dropped this evening into the 20s.  Highs Saturday and Sunday are only supposed to reach the low to mid 20s, and there's also supposed to be quite a bit of wind - what the weather forecast describes as "blustery" - not a weather word I'm fond of.  Dawn will be in her heaviest blanket as wind chills are only supposed to reach the teens.  The indoor arena is unheated, so I expect it'll be cold riding tomorrow.

To summarize my day - Dawn was Delightful, Pie was a Peach and Red Rocked - what more can I say?  Red is really getting the hang of shortening and lengthening stride at the trot, and we had a lot of fun - nice to ride a warm horse bareback on these cold days. Everyone was forward, soft and just plain wonderful - you can't ask for better than that!

  1. Supposed to get colder here too. The "blustery" part is the one I'm not fond of either.

    Still, you had some lovely rides today, so cherish the thought to keep your heart warm and put on the long underwear! *S*
