Time Out

Bear, snuggly in his winter blanket, hangs out in his warm stall with ample hay.

Bear in his lair

With -20C wind chill it’s simply too cold to ride, so Bear and I are on a time out.

In fact, it’s been a week since we last worked and it’s going to be at least three more days until we do.

Frustrating ~ especially since after our first two sessions with the new coach we’re already showing some progress.

I guess all there is to do is ruminate on the lessons learned and be ready to put them into play when the temperature gets more palatable.

[Sigh …]

My new mantra?

“Effort without tension; relaxation without collapse.”

Nurture what you love,

Dorothy 🙂
