Despite being disgustingly humid outside today, I had a wonderful ride.
Had a lax week about the gym. But it’s a vacation week for me before work really picks up in the fall - I plan on getting back in the gym early tomorrow am. I feel great though, and noticed I’m looking and feeling better in the saddle. I’ve also made some headway mentally, finally figuring out the world won’t end if you miss a day or 2 eating clean and exercising. I’m learning to just pick up where I left off, instead of punishing myself and sabotaging my progress entirely
The bugs were horrible today, so Baron got a vinegar bath after our ride. While he was drying, I also measured him for some new bakers. He was not having it, and was dancing all over the place lol. He’s somewhere between a 78”-85” based on my measuring struggles lol. I also measured him for a bellyband - which he stood perfectly still for?! (Go figure) - and I think he’s going to need a warmblood size, which needs to be ordered from FarmVet.
I had a great time at the Hampton Classic this week, getting to watch friends, barn kids, and twitter people show, but it was so nice having a morning at the barn - where I didn’t have to hurry off to something after. Nice pampering day for the pony 😊
