Is my dressage horse back?!

I have been taking it slow in bringing Mystic back into work. There is nothing to rush as we come into winter and we have the next 4 months to train before we have our show season to think about. He is working really well but is still getting back into shape so our rides have been on the shorter side with a harder ride every few days. I am so happy to say I finally feel like I have my dressage horse back! Bye, bye dumpy plow horse, hello fat dressage pony :)

We have also been making it a point to try to get up on the trails while we still can. A friend and I have been up the mountain once a week for the last few weeks and it has been so nice. Sadly, our weeknight trail rides are ending as by the time we get off work and get the ponies ready it is pretty much dark, or will be in a short amount of time. It is very nice to have a relaxing trail ride to get out of the arena every once in a while. Especially since our field riding time is also ending soon once the weather really hits.

Mylo continues to hang out! Im pretty sure he gets to move to a big boy stall at a barn soon. It doesnt get as much turnout in the winter as I would like but he will have a stall with attached run 24/7. If he gets unhappy with less turnout I will just bring him back home I think but he will LOVE to be with other horses and it will be really nice to have him at a barn (as much as it pains me to think about $ wise!). The only thing I worry about is not getting much time with him over there due because of my life getting busy but I figure even 3-4 days a week should cut it, even if some are just brushing/beauty days.
