So as it turned out, both of my rides were cancelled this week.
It was going to be a completely horseless week for me until a friend of mine graciously invited me out to play with her and her charming pony. She took a little spin around the empty arena but we didn’t stay long because the wind was threatening to blow the place down. The wooden barn was making some crrrrrazy noises but the pony was all business and never even batted an eye.
Saturday I cleaned and polished a number of leather goods as the afternoon sun filtered in through my window- it was sublime.
