Hack with Megan

I planned to ride yesterday, but the heat index was around 100 degrees and I didn’t think little precious Pippa needed to work under those conditions. Much less humid today and around 82. It really was a perfect day!

We tacked up and I went out and did some inhand work which went well. Then we did a walk warm up around the sand arena and the grass jumping area, where she got a chance to inspect some of the jumps.DSCN1727

We worked in the arena in all gaits and Megan was kind enough to take some pictures.They are mostly of canter, which was the gait we did the least, but of course it is the most interesting to photograph.DSCN1736DSCN1735DSCN1733

Even got a mild buck picture!

...And the famous Pippa stop.  Notice the dust flying.  Good girl!

…And the famous Pippa stop. Notice the dust flying. Good girl! I am petting her, not falling off.

We followed it up with a hack around the upper field with Lottie and Megan, which went well. Afterwards, we hosed off the horses and Megan grazed them while I put the triple bar up.DSCN1747
