Wizard Ride 211: A Leg at Each Corner

January 11, 2011

Monday, 1/10/11

FINALLY! Back in the saddle! It was a bitterly cold night, but I headed out to the barn with a mission- my back was feeling better so I was determined to ride. I free longed Wizard, making sure he walked, trotted, and cantered in each direction and then I tacked him up. Our ride was pretty brief, about 25 minutes in the saddle, mostly walking. I trotted Wizard for about 5 minutes- I did not want to over-do things for my back or for Wizard. It’s amazing how quickly riding feels foreign- I forgot what girth hole we had been using and felt a little out of practice. I guess I’d better get back in practice!

After my ride, I sent a text message to a co-worker of a photo of Wizard that I took from the saddle.

She texted back: Did you keep a leg in each corner?

Thankfully, I did!

    You made me smile – so many of my riding experiences were very Thelwell-like.
