Well, I went out there and rode Misty first. Quite a few times around the arena and picked up the speed to a nice little trot. Amazingly, saddled up Kola as well. Last year, only a halter and saddle and Steve leading once. She's broke and used to be a lesson horse, but after my crash in 2006, I'm a little gun shy and I've had Kola for only 2 years and Misty now for 5 years, I think. I was surprised to see her just open her mouth to the bit as I approached her with it. Hell, Misty doesn't even do that! I still had Steve lead her around this time, but next week, we'll just do our thing. Steve thought she was weird on her front legs, however, she is gaited and hasn't been ridden in forever. I think she was just lazy and not used to it, but vet is out on Thursday for coggins and remainder of shots, so I'll have her look at her. Her feet are clean and she looks good to me. I think just not used to carrying the weight and that is why we are riding weekly and if it doesn't rain tomorrow, we'll be getting some exercise on the lunge line. They both were my beautiful angels and very good girls under saddle and I thank them very much for carrying my fat bumble bee ass around today. As a treat afterward, they got turned out to some pasture. Come hell or high water, the three of us will ride and get in better shape!
