In the comments to my last post, Marie wondered if Horton would mind his Ps and Qs the next time I rode him after coming off. I am happy to announce that 1) the weatherman was wrong and today hasn't been a soaker, so that 2) I could ride this morning and 3) report that yes, indeed, Horton did mind his Ps and Qs!
Horton may not have hit any home runs today, but he stayed in the game and played well. :-)
*We live on a hillside and with the addition of rain the footing gets slick fast. To avoid injury (as well as fungal problems of hide and hoof) and preserve forage roots, we keep our horses off our limited pasture during the rainy season.
