With all the excitement on Saturday, I didn't get any riding done, so I was determined to put in some solid works on Sunday, and I was mostly successful! I grabbed Ruby first, and we worked for a while at the trot while I tried to replicate what I'd gotten at our lesson Friday, with middling success. I did make the mistake of asking for a canter midway through in an attempt to burn some energy and she gave it her very best shot at running away with me (in a not-huge, enclosed arena, so you know.... it didn't work well). Sometimes cantering early on sort of fries her brain but I was able to get it back and still wrap up with some nice work, so that was great! We have another lesson scheduled for Sunday and I can't wait!

I was on the fence about riding Cinna - I still hadn't gotten her discharge paperwork with any additional instructions (aside from soak her grain and give her antibiotics), so I figured a short, walk-only ride couldn't hurt. I thought that might be more successful than trying to keep her at a walk on the lunge line, and I was only partially right. There was lots of jigging, and at about the 13 minutes mark I did cave and let her trot two whole circles (one each direction), and then made her go back to the walk, which she thought was V V BORING.
