I like pina coladas... and getting caught in the rain!

Well, its been raining a lot here in WA! A lot for us anyway. Our dam is full and the paddocks are wet.

All the rain means the paddock is too wet to ride in. So the horses are doing lots of bush rides! Last weekend I took both the horses with me to pony club to use an arena at lunch time. I spent the whole day being asked by one student "is that Dakota?" me: "yup", Student "can I ride her?" me: "NO!".

Both horses worked super. Dakota got a bit more arena time, and my coach commented she was looking good. That's a win if you ask me!

Monday it rained. No riding, put ponies to bed.. it stopped raining. I'm no fair weather rider but I don't have a dry place to tack up!

Tuesday Coolie and I managed a ride in the arena. Dakota saw another horse and turned into a tart! Wednesday it stormed... no riding. Thursday no rain! Took Dakota out in the bush but since she hadn't been ridden and was being fed a LOT I was a bit worried she was going to be super charged... She was perky but happy to do what I wanted so she is a super good girl.

Today no rain again, So I'll Ride D after work. I'll ride Coolie tomorrow, then D has a jumping lesson on Sunday and Both horses have a lesson with Manu McLean on Monday. So a fairly bust weekend!
