This is What I Do


I've kept Ellie in her Baby Bootcamp for the past two official weeks of owning her and we're into a third. She has training rides Tuesday-Friday, then I lesson on Saturday in a group and do a light hack on Sunday. 

For me, the schedule has been fantastic. Now that travel has wrapped up I'm able to get a ton of office work done while stepping out to the gym during lunch 3-4 times a week! Then in the evenings I'm free to go to the barn and play for awhile before meeting Paul for dinner. 

When we play it's all about the grazing with a few bareback rides thrown in. Mostly I watch the juniors jump and Ellie serves as my couch. A very cute couch. 

Next week I'm going to incorporate a third lesson into the mix, a private, where we can start to get to know one another a bit better. But for the time being I have been more than happy to let the trainers do the heavy lifting while I enjoy spending some QT with her!
