Although we have had a fair bit of rain recently it is still possible to canter in my neighbour’s fields without risking slipping over. On Sunday my sister and I went for a lovely lazy hack and took full advantage of the not too slippy fields.
Some of the electricity poles have recently been replaced so the gateways were hideously churned up but the fields themselves were fine so we had a great time.
Both ponies behaved very well – Galahad was possibly the most sedate I have ever known him to be in the field. Hopefully the lesson is getting through and we will have no more taking off!
It did start to rain while we were out but it was that very fine rain which is practically just mist. Very atmospheric and nice and refreshing!
