Happy New Year!!
The sun is coming up to welcome in the first day of 2014, the Year of the Horse.
I had a wonderful morning yesterday. I filled my tea cup several times as I watched Shannon and Steffen schooling in the rising (and warming) sunshine at Arroyo Del Mar. They have upgraded the footing in the dressage court and it feels amazing! Very supportive, lots of life. The base has been redone as well. Shannon and Steffen have ridden on it in the rain and it still holds the foot and drains the water away. That will be a very good thing as we hit those rainy days that I know are in the future.
The horses are so ready for Lindsey to arrive this morning. I’ll head to Arroyo early this morning and walk, vibe floor, etc each one and then run into San Diego to the airport and pick her up for 11am. We’ll then go back to Arroyo and put a short ride on each of them this afternoon. They will be totally ready for lessons with Shannon starting tomorrow!
My lunch with Ivars on the pool deck yesterday…
(Ivars said the Cab was better the second day…)
So off to the stable, my work day has started!!
