|15-mi. Route at Kathryn Taylor Park|
Since Ms. Farah was going nutty with her short daily rides on the farm - I loaded her in the trailer & we headed to Redmond to meet up with our new Saddle-Up friends! Such a perfect day, hazy sunshine, warm breeze. Farah decided to become her own worst enemy... fighting the bit, trying to gallop, refusing to "listen" to me, making my life miserable. I was hoping that the six-mile mark would bring a return of her brain... but no... this time it took ten-miles! Three riders headed back to the trailers, but Amanda & I decided to add a few miles. Once the other horses were gone - Farah settled in, started paying attention, giving to the bit, collecting & moving out the way only she can.
Once we were back at the trailers, I stripped her saddle & looked for a place she could roll. Found a nice grassy area - but - faster than I could move her - she found the only clay - muddy spot & dropped into it, grinding her withers back/forth - having a horsy good time! That set her up for a badly needed bath back at the farm. Keep your fingers crossed that the improvement to her leg continues!
