A weekend off!

This was a first..a weekend off!  2 full non riding days.

My goodness we had a great weekend…

The horses all got their time on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the Vibe Floor Saturday and Sunday.  It takes us about 2 hours at Arroyo on “day off” days to deal with the horses.

Lance expects us there about 8/8:30 so if we arrive a bit later he’s a little upset.  Sunday, because of the Orange Bun run to Pannikin, we were a bit late so Lindsey needed to spend some extra time with him.  She walked him around Arroyo after his treadmill session.  He then happily settled down in his stall and stood munching his lunch.  He is one special horse…

William on the Vibe Floor.  It's like our Vibe Plate but bigger as the whole stall floor vibrates.  Wonderful.

And of course...we're totally crazy and went to Costco.  No parking spaces (everyone had line up to wait till someone vacated a spot).  This is the middle of the line to get out the door to leave!!!

A wonderful end to a wonderful weekend.

A busy week ahead.  Test day will be Thursday at Arroyo this week as Lindsey is flying home to Alberta to teach for 3 days this weekend.  Peter and the dogs will be very happy to see her!!  Her dance card for lesson times is jammed full but if you get a chance to drop her a note to say hi, she’d love it!!!

Off to work out…
