So when I turned the quarters out this morning it was supposed to be sunny and almost 40 degrees all day.
He's such a ham.
So the plan was to turn the quarters out, have a lesson in the early afternoon, and then ride Coriander around 3 p.m. But my lesson got pushed back, it started snowing, and the temperature kept dropping.
I literally had an inch of snow on me after my lesson, it was late, and I was frozen, so I didn't ride Coriander.
Not to mention the ring looked like this and the footing stunk:
So that plan didn't work out, but tomorrow is another day and riding him is at the top of my list. Here's some good news - I took Gwen out last night and did some more work on the leading exercises. As I expected, she was a ton better than the day before. She also let me pick up and hold one of her hind legs for a bit, maybe she was just awake enough from the farrier visit to figure out it was okay.
