I met up with Mara B later afternoon and found her relaxing with her pals and enjoying a bit of shade.
Our ride time was going down the quiet neighborhood street. Mara seemed hot and bothered by the time we were half way down the lane. I was simply planning to take in the peaceful shaded spots along the way. Not sure what her ‘deal’ was exactly.
So the ride turned in to mild struggles, corrections and do overs! When we got back to the stable grounds I returned her to the round pen for more ‘work time’ and then remounted and rode another twenty minutes until we were back on the same page. No photos though because I was in concentration mode. First ride of July turned out to be a training ride!
