As you may remember, Pluto had been taking a break and we’d been doing only flatwork for about a month. We added small jumps (a crossrail in-and-out in one lesson and an 18″ line in the next ) two weeks ago, but last week it was snowy and 10° so the horses only got handwalked for the week. We were able to hack and do poles over the weekend.
It was 70° yesterday (because it’s normal to have a 60° change in temperature in just a couple days and not a worrisome symptom of climate change), and I have a riding lesson today. The break has been really great for Pluto, and he feels so good! He’s really enjoying all of the stretching work.
This was kind of a rambling update, so here’s a cute picture of Pluto for your time:
