It's been a rather steady week of teaching, riding, work - here, there and everywhere! Things get a bit crazy over the next couple of weeks, so I'm super excited to have tomorrow and Saturday off from teaching. Although P has been ridden everyday, I'm excited to have tomorrow afternoon for just him and I time!
I try to avoid the feeling the P is just here to perform for me. For a long time when I was a working student, he had to bear the burden of being there for me when I needed him to be my friend, but having to be a machine when I needed him to be also. Now I'm trying to set aside play time - where things are as structured and he can kick up his heals. So that's what tomorrow is! Kickin' up heals time!
Happy 4th of July everyone! Be safe and enjoy!
