The weekend started off just peachy by my darling boyfriend, our dog-son Fudge, and myself going to a for-fun painting class. It was for the Colorado Pug Rescue (I can't believe people give their pugs away when they're old!) and we got to paint our puppy and let him socialize (aka timidly sniff other dogs butts when he thinks they aren't paying attention, and scuttling away when they try to reciprocate).

I then moved on to the barn, where it was beautiful and in the mid-50s. Gavin was wonderful and I accomplished some of my monthly goals (for the day) of being sweeter to him and cantering more. He was sweet, on my aids, and I didn't feel confused or that I was ruining him for the whole ride (YAY!!!). I also found out that my trainer is coming back near the end of March (YAYYYY again!) and I'm sure she'll have a whole new arsenal of tools as she's just getting back from an extended training trip to California.

I ended the weekend a happy horse girl, all recharged and ready to start a new week!
