I went out to the farm this afternoon, since I had plenty of time. Since I'm still not feeling like 100% I just played with Aston and called it a day. I got out there and continued to work on her mane. She HATES having it pulled, but doesn't actually get mad at me about it. She just dances around a bit and as soon as she realizes my intentions tries to keep me from grabbing a handful of it. Fortunately, I have about 80% of it done, so just a few more days and the whole thing will be done. I then tacked her up, and as I tacked her Sarah arrived. I didn't want to be alone for my first ride, so I was glad Sarah made it at that point. I threw her bridle on, my boots and helmet and off to the ring we went. As I got on, I didn't add leg I just let her walk off. We walked around for 7-10 minutes and then I hopped off. That's all I wanted from her, a happy experience!
Tomorrow I will free jump her and hopefully get some good photos!
