update, Part the Second:

It's brief, to be sure. I just wanted to keep it separate from the other stuff.

Last Friday I went a-riding at Argus. It was grey and chill and threatening rain, but riding time is riding time, dammit. Thanks to the holiday, vampcurse (Pam) had the day off and was able to join C. and myself.

There was much hanging out and chitchatting, and then the fetching o' the steeds. And more chitchatting in the barn. Lessons were learned (you are not allowed to put yourself down! *thwap!*), horses were tacked and to the ring we went; it's still too muddy for trails, alas, but we still had a good time. Oso was fair chuffed to be in the ring with his joust-life mate. He was all fast trot and canter (yes: Oso) and oh, my kickboxing-battered thighs felt every step. Shadow wasn't even having with the trot, and it was a joy to watch her very pretty canter as C. took her around - and around and around and around - the ring.

Later, Pam and I swapped horses (isn't a leg-up ever so much easier than you'd thought?) so that I had a chance to ride Dante, too. Not long after, C. had to get going. Pam and I stayed up a bit longer and ended with an impromptu joust pass. Oso dogged it (as he will do - next time, Pammy, he'll pick it up!) and I got a reminder of why I loved jousting on Dante (sorry, Ose; you'll always be my boy, but Dante has some moves).

We groomed and blanketed the ponies and turned them back out into the fields. It was only as I was driving home that this occurred to me:

hey! I just got to ride with the Hot Chicks of Argus. The only one missing was harpiegirl4. ::coattails!::

on a side note, if I ever joust on a white horse again, I'm naming it Arthur. Or The Doctor. *loves this icon!*
I feel: contentbemused

I'm so wishing I had Friday's off more often. :(
