This is what the world looks like when I get home from work these days.
It got dark in the evenings so suddenly! One week riding wasn’t a problem, the next I couldn’t ride at all! I am down to riding two days a week on my days off now. The ponies will be less fit over the winter and I’ll start building them up again when it gets lighter in the spring.
One bright side is that I am playing games with the ponies more. I started trying to teach my sister’s pony to bow and he is already better than Galahad which is irritating. He is very food oriented so it isn’t really a surprise.
Today was my day off though so Galahad and I went for a relaxed evening hack and had a lovely canter through the fields. Even though it isn’t all that high it sometimes feels like the top of the world, especially when things are a bit hazy like they were today. It was very calming and peaceful, the perfect end to the day.
