|Gaining respect on the ground...and a super cute QH|
|Versatility challenge, always fun|
|Hahaha love all the butts on these mugs!|
|I got to ride sidesaddle! Feels so different but more secure than I thought|

I scored two new blankets for Charlie, an unfilled 1200D WB turnout sheet for $55 and a 1200D 350gram "World Beater" high neck turnout for $125 (pretty sure this is a knockoff Weatherbeeta that is made in the same factory - retail price was $225 and it looked very well made). I tried them today when we got home and they fit perfect!
Of course I also got some small knickknacks, plus some yummy fudge and quiche. Always gotta sample the food (thank god I wasn't sick anymore and could enjoy it!) :)
On Sunday Emily took me down to her barn and I finally got to ride her horse, Ronin. He's a big OTTB too, a little older than Charlie, and goes like a warmblood which is cool and very different than what I'm used to.
Emily warmed up on him while I rode another awesome TB named Saxton who was so good and adjustable and a ton of fun, and then we switched.
|Isn't Saxton totally adorable?!|
|A different view: bleached out Charlie!|
|Me and Ronin|
|Such a good boy|
That was the best part, actually, I got to jump again. I may not have jumped anything more than a single fence in the last year, but I still got it! It was reassuring to feel it all come back, like riding a bike, and really amped me up to get Charlie started over fences....I feel jumping in our near future :)
