I rode Warrior Pony outside today, since the weather was lovely and the "footing" in the "outdoor" was relatively dry. At the end, I decided to see how she did with a little walk out in the hay field, and she was surprisingly calm. She tends to be a bit stupid about new things and since I am a giant weenie about riding out I am not exactly confidence-inspiring. I couldn't tell you why the hay field is different from the "outdoor," since the "outdoor" doesn't have a fence or anything, it's just closer to the barn, but mentally both the horses and I find it less intimidating than the fields.

She did nearly spin and bolt for the barn just after I took this, but I sat and made myself breathe and then she was willing to wait for me to decide we could turn and walk back. Good pony.

It's my favorite thing about living here! Most people like the 300+ days of sunshine per year ... I love the dramatic light in because it makes for good photos!

So glad that you guys were able to ride outdoor like that. It's an achievement to stretch both of your boundaries like that.

I absolutely love that photo too - her ears and the contrast of the sky and field is just really nice. :o)

Me too, it's something we need to practice more. The footing in the indoor is really ... problematic right now, so I'm hoping maybe if my trainer is actually back from Florida for good we can do some lessons out in the fields to work on it and avoid the crap footing all in one fell stroke!

Thank you! I love our dramatic skies. :)
