This week has been kind of a bust so far riding-wise.
I gave Dino Monday off, since he showed on Sunday, and all I managed to fit in on Tuesday afternoon was a quick 20 minute lunge session since I had a BBQ to go to. My job was kind of nuts yesterday, and though I did manage to ride, I found myself so mentally spent that I just ended up tooling around the ring on a long rein for a little bit, cruising around the back field once, and then calling it a day. Dino wasn't much in the mood to work, either, since he was being bitten by flies the entire time. Poor guy.
I think I want to jump today, but my schedule is looking a little crazy already, so we'll see. I'm feeling a little "meh" about the derby on Saturday. I've already decided that if it's going to be a really hot day, I'm not going to do it. The class is right at noon, and it's just not worth risking getting sick from the heat to do one class.
Plus, who knows if I'll actually be able to ride my pony before then!
Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow...
