I know we need to cold weather for a number of reasons, including killing all those pesky bugs! Ugh, but seriously! It was sooooo cold riding yesterday, I am definitely procrastinating on getting out there to ride today!! Besides the ridiculous temperatures, the wind gusts were insane! I was just trotting around and a big gust would come by and actually through me off center.  It was crazy!! 
Lego was really great though, we only rode for about 30-35 minutes, and after warming up we just trotted and worked more on bending and such for about 20-25 minutes before cooling back down.  He is still a lot less flexible going towards the left, so that's a big focus for us.  We trotted lots of circles, figure eights with trotting over poles in the center, he loves all of it.  He was stretching incredibly well yesterday, not sure if he was just lowering his head to get out of the wind though!! :P
