This is what Saturdays are meant for ๐Ÿ†


The day started with a morning ride on Shahina with Marie and her horse for 1,5 hours on some new roads. This was the first time we rode together but I have a good feeling that it won’t be the last. ๐Ÿ˜‰  


Shahina prefers to walk first but followed them nicely as we went out exploring. 

I am constantly looking for new dirt roads to explore since we spend a lot of time out on the trail. 


Once we got back to the stable I brought Popgun in and gave all our ponies their lunch. 

I then saddled Popgun and we waited for Rebecka to saddle her Paloma. Her mom, Henrietta, took this funny picture of the little nest I made while posting the picture from Shahina‘s ride on instagram.


I then rode Popgun with Rebecka and her horse Paloma down past the lakes. ๐Ÿฆ„โ„๏ธ We were out 1 hour and 45 minutes for about 13 km and had fun climbing on my favorite dirt road. 

We walked for about 20 minutes both at the start of and at the end of our ride but the rest of the ride was mostly nice and calm trot.

 Popgun and Paloma got along very well and I think they had a lot of fun. Popgun did drool some on Paloma though as we took a few pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’›

Popgun was well behaved but had a little extra pop in him today and didn’t particularly like the cars that made weird noises next to us on the ice. 


When I got back, Arshaq and I took a 30 minute walk as the sunset colored the fields as golden as my daydreams.  ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ…

We just need to wait one more year until we will be out competing together in endurance

Arshaq enjoyed stopping to eat some grass every once and a while and we also practiced trotting up for imaginary veterinarians. This is something we will need to do at competitions in the future so it is good to practice as much as possible. Popgun saw that we were trotting and started racing around in the pasture next to us. So we went back to walking, even though Arshaq luckily didn’t get excited this time. 

Tomorrow our trainer Per is coming out to teach Arshaq and myself some new dressage moves and Maja is going to come ride with Popgun and Shahina and myself. So this weekend is going to be full of wonderful rides!
