First day of spring

Ola ola,

I don’t think I’m the only who is loving the weather we are having right now.

13 degrees and sun instead of 0 degrees and rain. I can also notice on Grumpy that his body is less stiff when it’s a bit warmer.

Today I could finally have a lesson outside, which is not only good for him, but oh how lovely is it to have some fresh air?

For a while we’ve been a bit in a winter dip. I couldn’t find my grove when riding and he kept doing things so that he didn’t have to work, like running insanely fast when lunging or bucking in canter when riding. Today was the first time in a long time when it felt like he could handle it all again.

It reminded me how much I actually do love riding. I’m finally seeing an upwards line in our riding which feels really good.

Now, let’s just hope the spring has come here to stay. I’m not going back to 0 degrees!

Happy Saturday!
