I just wanted to post really quick to mention that I rode Chrome today. I will go into more details tomorrow because there are few things I want to share. For now I'll just share a couple of pictures and details. The ride was thirty minutes long in a saddle. I wore my breeches and paddock boots (and remembered why I don't wear them because they are two sizes too small and hurt like hell!). Chrome's stifle was locking again, which makes me sad because it hasn't bothered him in so long. I hand walked him to warm him up and he mostly worked out of it so I decided to go ahead and ride. After a long walking warm up with no locking I worked on trotting. I figured out part of the reason my leg is swinging, but I'll share that with you tomorrow. We were in the pasture and he was being horribly barn sour (and hubby sour; veering toward him), but otherwise willing. I completely forget I'm riding a greenie sometimes. He doesn't make me nervous at all. :D I'll post more details tomorrow.
