On top of that, the winter weather advisory for snow/freezing rain caused our JW clinic to get cancelled for the weekend. I had been riding very diligently, working on our "homework" but then the nasty weather hit last week and I was sick with a cold. Emi ended up with the week off (after a Monday ride) and we are still trying to get back in to the swing of things (side note: canceling the clinic was totally the right call, the roads were very bad).
Horses were inside over the weekend and Saturday morning Emi was worked up! I took her over to the arena for a little play time and she galloped around for a little while. She has started cross firing (when cantering around loose). She has always done that occasionally but she was doing it A LOT on Saturday. I think she's growing as her butt seems to be taller so I think she may just be out of balance. She appears to be sound and was just recently seen by the chiropractor so I don't think there's anything else going on (I also lunged her last night and she didn't crossfire at all).
Saturday afternoon I decided to ride Roz around the neighborhood, quickly deciding that I should take Emi along. I wasn't sure how easy it would be but both horses were great. Emi's morning play time in the arena had settled her down and Roz is always game for a hack around the farm.
That's about all that is going on around here...I'm counting down the days until spring!
