Dani and I had a nice short ride last night, our coldest yet. The barn was spangled with icicles and lights. I found her cozied up in her blanket - I have never met a horse that lets you love on them so much when they are laying down.
We had to give a trial saddle a final spin, and I have decided to purchase it - an older Albion K2 Legend. It seems to fit her nicely and puts me in a good position. Young horse + 30 degrees + new saddle? Why not canter for the first time in two months? It went splendidly. What a good mare.

On Monday I got to ride with my dear friend of seventeen years - we were on the equestrian team together in college but had not ridden together since those days. What a treat! Her lesson mount and Dani are close companions as well.
This mare of mine is just so easy to love.
