Woke up early this mmorning, and by early I mean 8 o'clock as I wanted to get to the barn early before anyone else started riding in the arena as I wanted to lunge Classy out good before I got on her. Got to the barn and gtrabbed Classy, saddled her up in the barn then headed over to the arena. We lunged for about 20 minutes and at first she was a little heads up and crazy but she eventually settled down. She had never been in an indoor arena and everything was a little spooky at first. After lunging I grabbed one of the girls doing morning chores to give me a hand getting up the first time as I was a little nervous. Clasy though was a doll, it was like she never had any time off and she sure works better when she has some room to move. We did a lot of walking, serpentines, circles and whoahs and ended with a good 5 minute trot doing similar. We then went back to the barn and untacked, she got her goodies and then I turned her back out.
So I have a horse, and indoor arena, other girls to ride with, but you know what was missing: my mom. Mom has always gone riding with me ever since I was born, she was the person to spark my love of horses and even though she may not always ride, she is always there to debeif with after riding and be my ground man when things are a little iffy.
Sorry, no pictures.No riding till wedndsday but will probably drive out to check on her tomorrow night.
