Standing Around

I guess it was a long week for me, because I was tired again this afternoon.  But it was a beautiful day, and I couldn't not go to the barn.  Bear was in good spirits and just generally happy to be hanging out with me.  We actually did a lot of standing while we watched Robin and Steen continue to test out the new saddle.  For the most part they looked good.  Steen was giving Robin some really relaxed lopes, but Steen wasn't always great as he also just wanted to come stand near us.  Understandable I suppose.

We alternated standing with some work on our steering and our stops again.  He was pretty good with both, and it was just really relaxing to be outside.  I think it was good for both of us to have another day where we didn't have to get all antsy about running faster. 

After the ride we stopped at an old bar called the Hilltop Tavern for burgers and Budweisers.  It was a great way to cap off the week.  We had never been to the bar before, and that is kind of surprising as it is right on the way home.  So we drive by it everyday.  Perhaps it will become a regular thing for us.
