For Galahad and I this week has been bookended by interesting rides.
On Monday we went for a hack and had to navigate a pretty narrow gateway. I knew my right knee was going to get knocked so I steered to the left and we cannoned into that gatepost instead. That’s something Galahad has always found frightening so we charged off across the field until I could pull up. We must have looked hilarious!
Then on Friday we set out to do a little schooling. The field was full of my dog’s agility equipment and as I knew I would be using it again soon I was reluctant to pack it away. Instead we fitted our schooling around it.
It was actually surprisingly easy to do and it also gave us a lot of obstacles to use in practising neck reining. We had great fun!
The highlight of our week though was Thursday. I had made sure I got up early enough for a hack before work and I was definitely rewarded for doing so. The sky was the most amazing blue and everything was looking particularly beautiful. We had a wonderful, relaxed hack and it was the best start to the day.
