Wizard Ride 146: Wizzy Pulitzer

May 26, 2010

Monday, 5/24/10

Fashion icon Lilly Pulitzer has partnered with Animal Crackers to produce a limited edition box for charity. I should have known Wizard would love them- he’s a preppy guy.

He polished off his adorable treat, and then we went on a trail ride with two boarders. We rode almost 5 miles, and rotated leaders. Wizard was the leader past the pig pen (in which there are no pigs), and was happy to be in the middle on the last leg of the journey. That’s progress! There was a time last summer when he’d fuss and fret if he was behind another horse.

After our trail ride (which used to be our entire ride), Wizard was nicely warmed up so we did about 10 minutes of trot work in the arena. It was dark and the moon was rising. I did not turn on the arena lights since I could see just fine with the barn lights and moonlight. We both enjoy riding in the dark. Wizard’s trot work was superb, elastic, supple, and forward. We worked on a loose rein, stretching into the bit and maintaining rhythm around the arena. I threw out my back and had to rest it over the weekend so Wizard had a week off- he was a perfect gentleman after the layoff.

He was such a good horse- the whole ride felt like I was playing with house money. I’m really enjoying my time with Wizard.

    Isn’t it nice when things come together?! Something must be in the star alignment because I’m having good stuff happen with my goofball too. 🙂 Love that!

    Way to go Wizard! What progress!

    Sarah, do you know of any rescues in the Atlanta area for OTTBs?
