A New School

Galahad and I have recently received permission to use a small indoor school just up the road from us.  It’s not a full size arena but it is certainly big enough to do a little schooling.

The main reason I hoped to use it was so that we can still school even in the depths of winter – the fields are lovely but just a bit too slippery when it has been raining for weeks on end.  Of course, that isn’t an issue right now but I was too excited to wait until winter to try it out.  Besides, it is good for Galahad to explore new places.

We had a lovely hack up the road, met the chickens and ventured into the school.  Galahad was slightly disturbed by the exercise ball – he’s never seen anything like it before – but was otherwise pretty unfazed.  No silly spooking or anything – he has come a long way!

He did actually spook once but as that was when a chicken flew up onto the wall behind him I think it was forgivable.

We had a good session in the school and then another lovely hack home again.  This is going to be a great addition to my riding.
