I spent some time at the barn yesterday packing away all my blankets and reorganizing my trunks so mow it truly feels like spring to me. I think May is one of my favorite months for riding in New England. We’re getting some lovely high 60s/ low 70s temps, the mud is dry, the bugs aren’t out yet, and the summer heat and humidity haven’t set in yet. If only it would stay this way!
