On New Years Eve I had my final 2014 ride on Cupid. It was very cold in the evening, just over 40 degrees. I skipped my planned ride the evening before because in addition to the cold there were gusts of wind up to 40mph - it was so bad it broke the mirror in the covered arena! Cupid and I practiced a lot of transitions between halt, walk, and trot. He was good, though sometimes his downward transitions are a little abrupt. At the end of the ride I gave Cupid a kiss and wished him a happy new year. Next time I ride him he will be considered a four year old!
