For the past two years I've harbored a slight guilt about not riding Wilbur at Brown. In all honesty it came down to time. There's just not enough of it!
And the excuses I've had to make to folks now feel slightly more justified having them both at the same barn.....
Even a few stalls down from one another, riding them both is a massive time suck! Finding a centralized location to tack them both up, lugging their various girths and bridles around. I'll be damned if I didn't spend a solid 2.5 hours today grooming, tacking, and riding both of them!
Wilbur went out on the trail with the 3 yr old Baby Ali is breaking in (a Palomino Popeye K). What a saint. What a gem my Wilbur is.
Ellie and I worked on collecting and expanding strides....all while maintaining an elusive straightness. She's a good girl!
Complaining aside, I'm cherishing the opportunity to ride both of my sweet horses!
