March 2, 2011

       Wow, it's been a long time since I've been able to get dirty and do some serious horsing around. With the weather (it is winter after all), wrestling and school work that has taken up most of my time this season, it's not often that I even have an hour to go visit the ponies. It's funny to see their faces and to hear them nicker at me when I finally get to escape up to the barn to see them. It's nice to know that they've missed me. Today was interesting weather wise. From strong winds and pouring rain with breaks of sunshine, to an afternoon of nothing but clear blue skies and an occasional gust of wind, we saw almost everything that Washington has to offer. The afternoon sun meant a nice, muddy retreat to the barn for a couple of hours of fun.
       The first thing I did was take little Koda out of his stall and take off his blanket. He hasn't had his blanket off in some time and he was really excited to get a full body scratch-over. I let him out in the field to stretch his little Shetland legs... And boy did he get a good run in! He cantered around and around and around the upper section of the field for a good ten minutes. The mud and puddles didn't stop him at all. He's a filthy little mess now.
Mocha with Rainbow Halter       Then it was Mocha's turn to get some attention. For getting this blog started I received a beautiful rainbow JT halter and lead set, so Mocha had the honor of getting to try it on first. She stuck her nose in the halter without a fuss and seemed happy to get out of her stall for a while. After getting all the caked-in mud out of her fur (which is shedding out like it's already 100 degrees outside), I had her follow me into the round pen for some lounging and ground work before I mounted up. She followed all my commands without complaint, listening to my words without making me raise my voice. However, after doing her stretches for some treats, she reverted to her silly behavior of avoiding the block when I'm ready to mount. We struggled for a moment, but she always stands still eventually. I don't like using bits if I can get away with it, especially if I'm only doing light riding, so I just tied up the other end of the lead rope and used it as my reins. Mocha gave a really sweet ride and listened to my cues with my legs and seat, so I didn't need to use the reins too much. After a few times around the pen, some circles and more groundwork, I dismounted, fed and watered... After I bribed Koda out of his corner of the field with some treats that is.
       Keep riding, and don't be afraid to get back in the saddle,
             ~M. Mocha is much happier after we did a saddle fitting and built her a custom lightweight saddle that fits her well.  Her saddle was built on a Steele Equifit gaited tree that has a great deal of flare in the front to accommodate her big shoulders.  We also have her fitted into a Marcel Toulouse English saddle that is built on a wide tree.
