Sorry for not writing any Blogs over the last few weeks, there's been lots going on, and for once not horse related madness!!
I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the sunshine before the rain hit today.....isn't it horrible?! It's chucking it down here and very windy so duvet day for the horses I think! Roxie refused to step out of her stable this morning so I had to muck out around her! I have to admit on days like this I'm glad to be working in the office, as much as I love my teaching, I can't say I'd want to be standing out in the rain today that's for sure!
The horses are all going very well, Roxie is continuing her amazing recovery and although at times she's not 100% on her knee, she is continuing to makes improvements on a regular basis so fingers crossed this continues. She has found the muddy and slippery ground a bit difficult but she getting the hang of it know, not that it stopped her running and jumping round the field like a mad horse!!!
Milli is feeling great and I even treated her to her first jump after her break yesterday, and despite all the acrobatics she performed I survived, just! My trustee neck strap worked wonders!! 😀 She thoroughly enjoyed being back in her jump saddle and jumping even if the fences did try to 'eat' her as she thought on our first approach to the fence......it was rather windy and as we approached our first fence, I saw a great stride, sat quiet and waited for the fence to come to us and then on the stride before take off the fence blew down so Milli did a very abrupt 'about turn' to save herself from the killer wing, which very nearly deposited me on to the floor!! The jump was put back up and once Milli realised it wasn't going to attack her again she jumped really well, even if she did find our newly painted jumps a bit scary! I am hoping to get a few jump lesson in over the next few weeks with Milli which will be great......I can't wait to get back out competing again and I can sense Milli feels the same!
Unfortunately I didn't have my phone in the school so we were unable to get any pictures or video clips......probably for the better anyway!! I do think the pictures below do show remarkably good comparison to how it felt.....Haha
I will keep you all posted with any plans we have coming up and how are training sessions are going as well so don't forget to check back to have a look....... :)
Until next time,
***Keep Calm & Canter On***
