Posting The Long Trot
This morning I took Abs out on the trail with L and Ella. We didn't have much time but wanted to give the horses a little bit of work so dropped the reins and asked them to move out in to a long trot. Abby is 14.2HH, a brick shithouse and full of power. What she is not full of is grace. Long trotting Miss Abby means posting about 300 times a minute. Luckily she's actually pretty smooth and I need the work as much as she does. Another great ride on my sweet pony.
Other good news for today is that I think I finally found a competent and professional lady to do acupressure on my horses. *hears angels break out in chorus* It feels like a miracle.
