A PJ Bonding Day

Yesterday was definitely a better day, weather wise, than we’ve been having, but I still wasn’t all that motivated to ride.  I got to the barn dressed to ride.  I pulled out wraps and my saddle pad and other equipment with the intention to ride.  I just couldn’t get inspired enough to tack him up.

I brushed him, which he really needed because he’s started to shed. Then I decided to take him for a walk.  The sun was out and it was warming up outside more than in the indoor, but the ground was still frozen.  Perfect – no mud.  Now, I didn’t get on him and go for a trail ride.  I took the lead rope and walked him like a dog.  We just went around our usual path – down to the river, behind the neighbor’s house, and back up the driveway.  He was up but only got a little unruly when the neighbor’s horses ran up to us to say hello over the fence.  It was good to get him out.  I think it helped our relationship because it was something different but he still had to pay attention to me. It was fun.
