I brought Elsa in to the arena, took off her halter and let her loose. I thought she would run and play, but she went right to rolling. THEN she got up and ran around for a bit, then trotted right up to me, as if to say, “ok, let’s go riding now.” Ha ha. Funny girl.
She was quite attentive today and had some quite good work in all gaits.
One of the advantages of riding in the afternoon is an open arena. After the ride, I stripped her tack and let her roll again, of which she took full advantage. Then I gave her a quick groom to get the sand off, put her blanket back on and turned her out.
