a sunny sunny day

but it was cold!

happily got well warmed up netting up all that remained of the big bale of haylage i bought just before christmas, new bale thursday, then bedding up etc.

then it took forever to get the mud off the boy!

good short ride; he was listening again, and we got lots of good stretching down - it is soooo disconcerting when he wants to do that in trot!  but it's was we want at the moment so part of the work is my getting myself brave enough for that, LOL.

only 20 minutes, but 20 minutes well spent - especialy when i consider the time i've wasted over the last year/18 months!


  1. After a while, you'll begin to love the stretching down. It's a great feeling when the horse lets go and lifts his back under your seat. It actually gets addicting.

    Glad you got to ride and have such success!

  2. I was thinking along the same lines as Jean, how it's a lovely feeling and you just might want to do it more and more.
