Night workouts

Here we are, back in the time of year when the indoor arena comes in handy. Of course, that involves re-training Lena - again.

Yes, it's dark outside. Yes, the lights overhead make your shadow stand out more in this corner. Yes, the noises from Peter's feed cart rolling by outside echo like crazy under that metal roof. Yes, the rain makes a lot of noise on that same metal roof. Yes, the other horses are also a little freaked out - or not - but you can still share space with them and not act like a goof ball.

In other words, it's the "any excuse" time of year, which I guess is just like all year. Same challenge, different excuse, always testing.

Life with Lena. I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.
