Bad moods all around

I had a pretty rough day yesterday, thanks to some computer problems that prevented me from getting any work done. Unfortunately, I also had a training session for Panama scheduled in the afternoon, and I didn't think about cancelling it until it was too late to do so.

I don't know if Panama sensed my bad mood yesterday, but he was an absolute jerk for Leslie — possibly the worst he's ever behaved for her. I always hate training sessions like that, because I end up leaving the barn feeling so negative. I take it pretty personally when my horse misbehaves.

My trainer also thought it could be due to the weather — as is common in Denver this time of year, we've had a lot of sudden changes between sunny, hot weather and windy, rainy weather. I have noticed that the wind tends to stir Panama up a bit, so I guess it's not unreasonable that the sudden rainstorms would too.

Anyway, I'm hoping that whatever it was that caused Panama's bad mood, it'll have resolved itself by the time I get there later today. I think a nice ride this evening would be a perfect way to make up for my crappy Monday!
