Selena Ride 8: In the Limelight

August 7, 2009

I rode Selena earlier than usual. We rode in the outdoor arena with three other horses. She was great and seemed to be happy with the company. We worked on a few circles at the trot and did our usual long walking warmup. She was doing that wonderful snorty thing that some horses do when they purr with each stride. I think she did it because she was in high spirits to be with the other horses in the big arena.

I was a little self-conscious riding during the barn’s prime riding time since it has been a while since I’ve done a lot of serious riding. My seat and leg need a lot of work. I could see a few curious boarders taking a peek at the pretty grey mare and the girl who always rides at night :^)

After our ride in the arena, we went on a walk on the trails with Mary the Morgan and her owner. The ride was GREAT! Selena has a fantastic walk and she is a delightful trail mount. She was a little concerned with a huge white hunk of plastic junk but she bravely walked past it- good girl :^)

I wormed JR, Wizard, and Selena with Ivermectin.

I walked Wizard for about 20 minutes and did a little photo session with him (at Flickr link on the right). I jogged him for a friend and she agreed that his right hind looks great. Whew! I grazed him and put him out in his paddock with JR for the night. It was clear and cool and the boys were delighted to be out in the fresh air.

On my way to a wonderful long weekend in Saratoga for racing and the sale. Can hardly wait!

    Wow, this is my first time visiting your site and your photographs are absolutely amazing. Gorgeous. I don’t even know what to say, except that they have inspired me to attempt to take some equally gorgeous photos of my own horse. ATTEMPT being the operative word! Kudos!
