I did manage to get a ride in last week, which was so nice! As I tried to explain to my decidedly non-horsie boyfriend, there's no happy like riding happy! Both Scarface and I are out of shape. This meant not-so-supple shoulders on his part and majorly sore legs the next day for me. We didn't ride that long or hard as Scarfie is an outside horse and I didn't want him to get too sweaty. We did some lead change exercises (diagram below that hopefully makes sense) that my dad suggested (I love coming from a horsie family), but no actual changes. Scarface was a good boy (he's always good the first ride after time off), although he got a bit confused in the sidepass portion of the exercise.
