Motivation Squashed

So my dressage comp this weekend has been cancelled due to the wet weather.

My baby girl is 2 today. 2!!!

I can barely believe it.

It's so easy to say "I'm too busy today, my husband is too cranky, my daughter is too clingy, it's too hot or it's too wet, I'm sick, I can't ride today".

Way too easy.

So I booked a couple of unofficial prelim dressage tests for Allie and I on the 25th March, just a few weeks away. Linda is going to come put a few rides on Allie for me, and I'm going to have a few lessons with her too. It's the little kick up the bum I need to actually ride my bloody horse.

So with that motivation, I went out on Saturday in the threatening rain and I rode. Allie was a bit miffed at first, but got into it and gave me some lovely trot and canter work.

Hopefully I can squeeze in a few solo rides too.

Wish me luck!

Gracie update

Gracie has healed spectacularly. It will be 4 weeks tomorrow.

She's sound and happy. She had a body treatment this week and the therapist was able to get a bunch of good releases from her which is unusual. Gracie even yawned 4 times! She never yawns during a treatment! Hopefully in a couple of weeks Natalie can hope back on like it never happened.
