I've managed to ride all three horses three days in a row. I used to do this fairly often - sometimes I even rode four when Dawn was still here in Illinois - but I'd fallen out of the habit. I've started working back towards that again, and it's a very satisfying afternoon when I have the time to do it.
We were somewhat warm and humid on Friday, but Saturday and Sunday were both beautiful - temperatures in the 70s with low humidity and a nice strong breeze to keep the bugs at bay. And Saturday and Sunday we rode in the beautiful, large outdoor arena.
My routine is to get to the barn about 2 p.m., bring Missy in from her turnout - she usually meets me at the gate - she starts walking there as soon as she spots me walking down the hill - groom her and ride. Missy's not currently sound at the trot so we do a 15-20 minute walk ride. We'll do another lunge recheck of her soundness on Monday, July 3, and if she's not better we'll do another 5-day course of Equicoxx to see if that helps her out. But she's good to walk and very happy to do so.
Then I bring Red and Pie and in, and groom them in their stalls while waiting for the bring-in traffic to clear out of the barn aisles. Once the aisle's clear, I saddle them both - it's nice that they wear different saddles (Missy shares Pie's - she needs no shims and he does due to his narrower shoulders).
If the feed cart is about to come around, I wait to ride - I try to be considerate of my horses. I usually ride Red next - he worries less about Pie being ridden if he's already been ridden himself. I don't ride either Red or Pie for a very long time - we usually ride about 30 minutes. My horses are all trained well at this point and do pretty much exactly what I ask them to do, with softness and deep connection - even if it's something new, or something we haven't done for a long time, they very quickly understand what I want - so we just enjoy our time together and work on building our (already very close) connections and our mutual softness.
Joy and delight - that's what I experience when I'm with my (marvelous) horses.
May all your horse days be as good.
