|Nancy & I in outdoor -|
taking full advantage of sunshine!
|Splash effect after rain soaked outdoor work,|
of course she got groomed afterwards so no residue
nor irritating-itchy-sand-affects (I hope)
I just covered the basics with both girls, w/t/c; circles, serpentines & changes of rein to get all our brains synchronised again and singing from the same hymn sheet. My mam & dad were driving by & spotted Nancy and myself in the outdoor so they popped in to say hi...my mother suggested I pull my stirrups up a hole as my legs looked too straight and I was pulling my heels up too high - I told her I just ride poorly but was willing to try anything to help me get better.
I will have to see over the coming days of it makes a positive difference or if it'll have the negative effect of my knees hitting the dressage saddle knee blocks in the wrong place - the saddle isn't the best fit for me in any case, but until I can afford to change the saddles for both girls I can't even think about getting a better one for me - weird reasoning...I know, but sure I'm weird & I accept this ;-)
|Nancy's feathers are growing!|
Extra hair-brushing for her feet ;-)
No better way to spend a sunday afternoon!
I did snap some photos on my phone...but sadly I'm not sure atmosphere was adequately captured :-/
However I am only to happy to share photos if there is any interest in seeing them, perhaps a Mostly Mute Monday post tomorrow ;-)
PS: Apologies for the lack of Kika photos in this post, but seeing as i rode her first & did Nancy immediately after...K didn't spend as long in the cross ties nor does she stand as quietly & demurely as N. Miss Kika has to make a scene & grates on my nerves by pawing the ground with her front feet and no matter how much i ask/tell/yell at her not to - it makes sweet FA difference to her. So to spare me and others using the common grooming area I prefer not to leave her tied as i fuss about doing other things
