Although, the rides were short and sweet, it was the first time since spring of 2009. Misty is no worse for the wear. I am so surprised at her recovery from her knee torque a few years ago. Wow, that little mare can still carry this fat ass. Kola , on the other hand needs to be worked more, not because she doesn't remember, but because she needs to strengthen up. So I'll have to start her on a little exercise program to build her up more. Plus I need to work on placing that Aussie saddle a little better, think I had too far up on her shoulders. Think maybe we'll have a go again tomorrow. They were both such good girls. I really needed this and so did they. And my own version of a bit-less bridle worked out very well for Misty!
