Gearing Up

J has been anticipating the next big ride.  I've looked it up and there are at least 7 rides within 5 hours of us this spring and summer. 
 Jessica hasn't been ridden much in the last 4 months and this was her first time in the new barn.  After a little looking around and warm up lunging J got on and she did fine.  The wind was gusting to 35 mph outside and there were a few snow squalls.
 She did check out Kit.
 He had a prime viewing spot.
Jessica can't quite work up as much speed in here as she does in the outdoor arena but all in all it was a good workout.

So we both have a cat named Kit! I sure love your barn- looks like Jessica liked it just fine too.

Lucky you, I had to haul 3 nights last week to the arena to practice.

Then had our show on Sat.
