leigh

Mule & Mare Rider. Trail rider, Natural Horsemanship enthusiast, and have been dabbling in driving a cart.  I love to ride to see what's around the next corner or over the next hill.

Never lose the wonder. Three amazing things: 1) while doing arena work sideways with no reins and no forward 2) found a way to feel the left diagonal in a posting trot 3) Bunny offered to take me on North and the corner of Maple & 103rd Rd instead of bringing me home-no direction or preference from me

Temps around 34 with the windchill around 26.
Blue was a good boy, we rode slow due to the snow still in the fiels. He was a good solid mount. Somethings I love about Nebraska: 1) no fences 2) flat land where you can see miles and miles ahead to what's coming 3) harvested corn where the stalks still make nice neat rows where you can work on straightness

What a day. Trimmed a horse and a mule. Got Wonka (the two year old mule) saddled him and did ground work including mounting from the fence too bad we didn't ride anyway I could have used the 2 o4 3 steps towards the shortest ride award. Then worked on desensitizing to fly spray and then bridled him. All of it non events. He's coming along nicely. Then caught& haltered the entire herd of 14 and they got to stand tied for a couple of hours waiting on the vet to come vaccinate. Everyone did great except Willy who has always been nervous around Doc. I am now sporting some lovely rope burns, but at least it is my left hand. Jaime came and picked me up (we were late she got lost trying to find my house) and we rode at Rockford Lake SRA with some new PRR riders. Had a great time. I am ready for bed tonight though.

Jamie said...

I would HOPE you were finally ready for bed!! You had a BIG, busy day. Plus, geez, I got home and texted you that I'd made it at quarter after 11 and was in bed already when you texted me back... at quart to 12! rofl Hope you slept well.

Great night for a ride. Perfect temperature and only a breeze. Willy was really with me emotionally tonight. Love it. Came home and put Wonka's first ride on him but didn't have the gps going for that (that was the least of my concerns). He's going to make a great saddle mule.

Had some real good connection with Willy tonight. Developed his ability to stay emotionally calm in walk to trot transitions. Played a million transitions, then just hunkered down in the Parelli passenger position and let him jack hammer/moose trot until he asked until he could slow down. Good thing mules have a short flight line and he wasn't really go-ey tonight. We were trotting softly on a loose rein by the end of our session so I quit on a good note.

Lovely training ride on Blue. We got some lovely walk to back up transitions and some lovely trot to halt to back up transition. Some really nice collection and started to develop an extended trot with collection. We also got some of the best sideways we've ever ridden off the rail.

Got a second ride in tonight. Lazy yellow moon coming up tonight.
Got both the Walkers ridden. Hobby rode off up the drive way and headed north on a loose rein. All went fine until the farmer & his son came out of the field on their 4 wheelers from checking their irrigation -then I had my high headed nervous wreck return. After they left she calmed down nicely but never got brave again or offered to take us any further north.

Blech and double blech. Had some amazing moments of unity during our ride.

WINDY! had to twist the dial another notch to tighten the helmet down and even then the 60mph gusts did their best to lift it. This mule should have been name PePe Le Pew like the cartoon character, her lope is sort of a dun ta dun ta dun along. In fact I looked over and the dog was loping (loping not running) faster than we were! Gaitor wasn't much phased by the wind but I sure dried out fast.

Fast Ride as it was cold! Wind blowing from the north and I can feel the snow in the air that is just north of us. Thankful to have this ride today.

There is a secret message written in today's ride. I have come to the conclusion I suck at ride writing but I had to try. Windy again today. It's always windy on my days off, whine whine whine.

"Mules Rule". Love it. The L in the last word looked quite challenging.
