I decided to make a quick trip to the barn before picking Kaylee up (and instead of working on the house, I needed a pony break, no judging). The barn gets BUSY at 4pm! There was a group lesson going on, and more people kept coming in. Thankfully I got my lunging done before it was super full and eventually I couldn't stand being around that many. I'm so spoiled with my morning rides when I'm the only one in the ring.
I left and tried to go around the property on the perimeter trail but it was too soppy and muddy so I just did the hard packed part (and shorter) at a trot on the way out and walked back.
GPS said I did about 2 miles. Huzzah! Forward progress!
