On Tuesday, the vet was scheduled to come out and do dentals and vaccinations for the ranch's other horses. While he was there, he was going to also do a blood draw to check Speedy's ACTH levels. I decided not to ride either horse that day so that Speedy would be at his mellowest when the vet arrived. Due to some conflict or other, he wasn't able to make it. I didn't know that until it was too late get a ride in though.
On Wednesday, I showed up at the ranch at 7:00 a.m. for a quick ride and still made it to work by 9:30, all of which meant I got home sooner. I could had ridden longer, but Speedy just didn't need it. After our lesson on Sunday, he was nicely in front of my leg AND soft on both reins. The ride doesn't need to be long if they're giving everything you ask for.
Talk is cheap, you know?
