Today Biasini and I did not have a training lesson. It was cold with temperatures just below freezing. But the sun was out and the sky was a clear blue. I decided we would go out for a walkabout. I had on my thermals and I have a special quarter sheet to keep Biasini’s hind end warmer. It is a water resistant fabric with a fleece lining. So I got the pair of us dressed up and off we went. We walked past the paddocks at the back of the Oakcrest barn and on up the hill. Yesterday we had a big snowfall and once past the paddocks the snow was untouched. We were the first to walk there. We walked up a small hill and out onto the big open area that in the summer is a large grass field where we can ride. We walked out onto the snowy space.
It was absolutely beautiful. Look at the snow decorating the trees. We walked around the loop behind those trees. We repeated this circle a couple of times. For Biasini walking in the snow was extra exercise as since it was at least 9 inches deep he had to step up to go forward .
What a marvelous horse he is. Yesterday in the indoor arena we had an excellent lesson and he was a super dressage horse. Today he was out in the snow, as calm as can be. I think he enjoyed it!
