Selena Ride 3: That Was Easy

July 29, 2009

Saratoga- Mecca of Thoroughbred Racing

Monday, 7/27/09

I’m counting down the hours until my first trip of 2009 to Saratoga Race Course. In the meantime, I’m spending time with the Jersey Thoroughbreds :^)

I hand walked Wizard for about 20 minutes and grazed him for about 15 minutes. He was a little quiet, probably from the humidity. I rode Selena for about 20 minutes, all at the walk. We rode indoors with Mary the Morgan and her owner. The mares got along quite well. I’m looking forward to taking them on trail rides together. Selena is a very easy-going mare who has more miles under her belt than the other horses I’ve been riding lately. I had forgotten how (relatively- ha!) simple it is to ride a horse who has had a good amount of training. Of course, we were just walking and things will be more challenging in the next few weeks, but so far I’m having a great time with the tall grey mare.
