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. 😉
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.
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 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. 🏆🦄🏁🇸🇪🏅
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!
