Since Archie has had his post eventing season holiday, he has been spending time getting fat and resting up. Doctors orders. He is looking nice and fat now and we are ready to start getting back into shape for the 2013 season. What better day then today - with almost 2 feet of soft fluffy snow covering the ground.
Archie was very excited when I took him out, but well behaved as always. I took him for a little gallop to get the zoomies out. We mostly just worked at the walk, on relaxation and carrying himself into the contact. He was most excellent.
There is this feeling you get when you have been riding green and difficult horses, and you get back on your trusty ol steed. Like the butt groove you acquire in your favorite Lay-Z-Boy. Home. It feels like home. Bliss.
Earlier in the day, when the horses first went out they were having an absolute ball in the snow. Rolling and rolling, bucking and rearing. They were being typical geldings, loving their day.
