Sledding with Marley

I haven't posted much this year yet, hoping to do alot more as the year goes on. I also got told to not be such a weenie and get out and enjoy riding in the snow. I broke my thumb at the end of January and it is in a small brace so some things have been a little awkward to do. But my husband came home last Friday and seen me out with Marley and our youngest doing this....."Oh so you can't do this or that, but you where able to saddle and get on your horse!" He just thought it was funny on priorities. Thumb should be as good as new by mid-March.  We had a few more inches of snowfall but the temp was finally out of the sub zero area. I thought I would like to take the opportunity to refresh Marley on some of our posse training. Certifications are coming up quickly again for the year as well as clinics, events, parades, and competitions.
 
Getting the line prepped for the ride. The other 2 horses had to check out that funny green circle thing.  They even followed it around for a while.  Hoping one day they too will be willing to pull something without getting goofy.

Trying to figure out how fast we can go "Not to fast Mom"

I think we finally figured out how to stay in the sled. 

Ok line is good, found a seat, lets go!

  2. That looks like a lot of fun! Glad you finally rode, you Weenie. Oh, by the way, just what does your husband want you to do? Chop wood? Snowblow? Shovel snow? Anyway, any self-respecting horsewoman can saddle up with a broken thumb, but I bet you can't do dishes because you can't get the cast wet. I hope Mother Nature sends better weather your way so you will be able to get out more.
