Romeo and I, gathered up in our western gear, headed to the arena. We opened and closed gates, rode all three gaits, and just got focused on canter/halts..
When the skies opened up
And it poured
Rained a downpour, right on my saddle.
By then, I'd given up, seeing the lighter rain,
And started back towards the barn.
We hurried to his stall, where I undressed him, apologized for the shorter ride, explained, "I don't do downpours, or thunderstorms", and we had both. The stupid weather shortened a planned 45 minute ride right down to about 25 minutes.
