Ha! Actually I did get to ride today, but I also spent money updating the last of my necessary memberships (USEF) to be able to show this year. Now I just need to save money for entry fees . . . and lessons. The first show in my sights is not yet "live" (DevonWood in the Spring, April 13), so my checking account can catch its breath for a little while at least.
It has not yet rained today like the weatherman said it would, and my son left to go swimming with my neighbor and her grandkids. Whee; that means I got to ride! Lance had some really good moments – and a few bad ones. I'm keeping in mind that our schooling sessions haven't been as regular as usual these past few weeks. It didn't help that the peanut gallery (Ollie and Breezy in their paddocks overlooking the arena) were antsy, wanting a chance to get out and stretch their legs, too. So when I was done riding, I turned all three loose to roll and play. It's a testament to Lance's good character that he saved most of his shenanigans for after our ride!
Oh, and spring is officially on its way – Lance is starting to shed his blaze! Yay!
