Spring? Riding? Yeah...right!

Well, I thought I would get back in the saddle today. The arena snow finally melted and dried up. EB texted me with the good news yesterday and I was all set to go out and longe/ride Hugo this evening.

See? Doesn't it look just wonderful?
Then I woke up, and to my horror realized that I forgot we were hosting out of town guests over this evening for my annual St. Patrick's Day dinner. Mind you, I did not forget about St. Patrick's day, I just forgot all about the dinner.

More snow today...
However, it was not to be regardless. As I type this we have 1" of fresh snow accumulation and it is forecasted to be a total of 3" today. That means the arena is off limits again anyway. I have a sneaking suspicion that this year is going to be one of those in which we have snow through June. So, I guess I'll just toast to my misery with a coldish Guinness and merrily enjoy my delicious corned beef, cabbage, and irish soda bread feast.

Happy trails and swooshing tails!


  1. Well at least your not missing useable riding time. Happy St Paddy's day!

  2. This winter... will it ever end?!
