I hope everyone had a great weekend! Here is a snipit of my ride yesterday on Ike, my father’s Tennessee Walker gelding. He is so great. He felt a little off, probably because of me, so we just took it easy and had a nice, relaxing ‘on the buckle’ walk. It was as beneficial for me as it was for him. With my brain being as scattered as it has been lately, just mounting up and reconnecting is what I desperately need and can not seem to get enough of. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
For those of you that did not get to ride this weekend, I give you Valerie Ashker and 2nd Makes Thru Starting Gates. She is riding her two OTTBs across the country from California to Virginia to raise awareness for off the track thoroughbreds. She posts multiple videos and pictures a day of her rides east. I’ll tell you it helps me get through my day from my office chair. Share her with your friends and let us support her. Doing a cross country ride is definitely on my list of things to do in life. I dare say I will do it one day. Maybe in the year 2020 ;).
