Looking to the weekend

Well we are half way through the working week, and still I am greeted every evening with a whinney and a shout from tayah, pleased to see me I guess.

Off to Griggs open day with Glenys on Saturday, looking for some bargains 😜

Hoping to go for a ride with tayah on Sunday. Hoping my arm is ok, after my accident a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I am pushing it to soon as only started driving this week following it.

Accident, I hear you say! Lovely mono, Glenys’ little Shetland had been broken to pony trap, only the third time in it, and something spooked him which made me needing to jump out at speed. Only to realise the following day I could have just put my foot on the break 🀭

Spent the evening in A&E but thankfully no real damage. Just a bruised arm and shoulder as well as the bruised ego too.

You will be pleased to know that since this happened mono has been back in the pony trap, and doing fine. He had no damage at all, thankfully.

Winter is hard work.

Well, we are now in February and with storm Dennis lurking, it looks like another weekend of no riding πŸ™‰πŸ˜³.

Everywhere is so wet, the rain seems endless, the temperature keeps changing up and down, but the ponies still need to be done. Mud monsters comes to mind πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ΄πŸ˜¬

Although the weather has been bad, in between the breaks I have been managing to keep Gatsby going with his training.

Over the Christmas holidays we hired knightswood arena to try Gatsby out with some schooling. We hacked there and back, Gatsby was amazing.

Getting used to the surroundings
Give us a kiss!

Since his schooling training, Gatsby’s roadwork and hacking has improved. He is better in a straight line, and is listening to my leg aids more.

Ready for work
Glowing nicely #hivis

We are now in March and continuing to try and find gaps in the weather for gatsby to continue his training. I cannot get over his brilliance and resilience when taking on new tasks which are being asked of him.

The schedule has arrived and entries are open for Royal Cornwall Show 2020. We are now getting ready for this, and Gatsby along with his 2 mini friends mono and huckleberry, will all be competing at the show.

Exciting times ahead 😍πŸ₯°πŸ΄πŸ’œπŸ€ž
