I needed to get a ride in on Bali tonight, I ended up having dinner and a glass of wine while visiting with my husband first. I finally roll out there, it is just after 8pm. I go get Bali, groom her, opt for the snaffle bridle (easier cleaning and I’m tired), and then some demon possessed me and I took the stirrups off my saddle.
Do I just have a short little walk trot like a sensible person might do? No. Full ride, posting trot until warmed up, the works. I might pay for this tomorrow. My hamstrings are already tight.
Then, while walking out around a pasture to cool out, because yes, this ride required a cool out, and Bali decides to spook. I should probably ice my lower back. No, I didn’t fall off, but that spook was a bit of a yank.
