I think Farrah despises summer as much as I do. The oppressive heat and humidity of Florida in the summer time is bad enough, but add to that spending rides working on getting Farrah fit enough to tackle some serious dressage work come July 1 with Lauren and well, you have a Red Head who is really bored. Seriously, Farrah is thinking she must have died and gone to some horsey hell where there is simply no.jumping.ever.again.
No jumping (and I am trail riding her a bit, not drilling her in the arena) is like taking her to an amusement park with all kinds of great rides but instead of riding them, Farrah has to watch the other kids playing. Farrah has made it abundantly clear to me that as far as the red head is concerned, this has to Stop Now, or I risk complete meltdown. I admit, I caved.
Cantering past a small fence I thought, oh what the hell, why not? I presented the next one to Farrah and I had the most fun loving pony back, joyfully taking small fences and being so good!! I know Farrah was barely able to contain her enthusiasm, but I swear if I could have seen her face going over the jumps, she would have been smiling!
From Farrah to Lauren, I can just about hear her say "where the hell have you been" when Lauren gets the fit pony back in July!
