We earned it though! We did 10 miles on Sunday, dressage lesson on Tuesday, then a jump lesson Thursday and a jump lesson Friday. So... yep, I think it's acceptable to do a bareback ride and just hack on Saturday. :) And yes, I realize that we only rode 5 times this week, but... they were hard rides. Seriously...my whole body was sore. I'm getting so old.
But we still managed 4 miles and we did a teeny bit of trotting and cantering. It was fun catching up with Missy and Marty and Indi and Zhar. :)
And then we farted around at the trailer. We each had a peppermint and Fleck wanted to smile afterwards :)
