Vinter



Så kom då snön, faktiskt ganska skönt att slippa all lera ett tag. Men, det var kallt i vinden när jag och Calinka red ut. Åsikterna gick isär om tempo för turen – en vill ta det lugnt och sansat när broddarna inte var på, den andra tyckte “fullt ös medvetslös” passade bättre…
Väl tillbaka i stallet var tanken att rida Pepper, men eftersom han brukar bli pigg av vila, snö och vind tyckte jag det var en dålig ide när jag inte var helt säker på underlaget. Så det blev tömkörning istället. Bara därför var Pepper inte alls framåt, men vi visade mycket tölt.
Eftersom min möjlighet att motionera hästar en vecka framåt är begränsad passade jag på att leka med Percy också.

Winter

Then the snow came, rather nice to get ride of the mud for some time. But, the wind was cold when Calinka and I hit the trails. We had different ideas about speed – one thought a slow, safe gait would be preferable as we didn’t have any thing to prevent us from slipping, the other was more in a “full speed” mood…
Back in the stable I planned to ride Pepper but changed my plans as he usually get a lot of energy when it is windy, he hasn’t been worked in a while and it is snow. As the roads wasn’t perfect – or could be icy I found it a better a idea to long rein. Therefore he was rather slow and unengaged while I did that – as he wondered how could I have thought he would have had energy?
As my possibility to work horses is reduced for a while now I also played with Percy in the pasture before going home to my family.
