My adventures with Kiloton the greatest Off The Track Thoroughbred ever!

Obstacles

So I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t actually ridden in over a week and a half. This summer has been unbearable to say the least! Followed by a spring with one of the highest rainfalls on record, now we’re in this crazy heatwave of 97 degree days, 70 percent humidity, and heat indexes through the roof. So needless to say it’s not been the best riding weather.

Kilo doesn’t seem to be bothered too much and I think that this time off is quite refreshing to him! Besides the weather, Kilo decided last week would be a good time to throw both his front shoes in a matter of 2 days apart. He was a bit sore and the farrier came out this past Friday to put on a shiny new set of shoes. So far, Kilo approves of the new nike’s. Now if the weather could give us one day of low humidity, we can get some riding time in!
