Galahad and I had a wonderful ride last week.
We went along a route we don’t use very often and went a little further than usual. The valley was looking absolutely beautiful and we had a lovely, relaxing time.
We were very lucky and only met a couple of cars. There was also a van (with a lovely driver who turned off his engine) Galahad tried to shoot past him and slipped a little on the new tarmac where the road had been resurfaced. It was nothing major though and we got home fine.
When we got back though I realised that Galahad had got pretty sweaty (he was fine!). I think it is time to admit that he either needs to be clipped or not do so much work. I don’t really like to keep him clipped over the whole winter. It just doesn’t seem fair on him to have him bald and rugged up when I can only ride him a couple of times a week. I’ll clip him when the days get longer and in the meantime we’ll just have to go for shorter rides.
