My ride with Shahina today didn’t exactly go as planned.
The ground was so extraordinarily awful for a horse without snowsoles so we ended up turning back almost immediately. I was smart enough to bring a hoof pick since her feet filled up with snow and ice almost every other step.
It took us ages to get back to the stable door, not only because Shahina was more interested in eating some sticks/plants she found instead of letting me clean out her feet a million times over and over again. She did not approve at all of my silly human priorities and made that very clear. Princesses know best I guess. 👑
But, for some reason I figured it might be better in the paddock. Which it was not.
So it was a rather disappointed mare and a very tiered rider that eventually gave up and went inside tonight.
We are lucky that we don’t need to wait too long for winter shoes though since our farrier is coming on Wednesday evening. Thank goodness. 🙏
