Now that I’m home again it is lovely to be spending more time with the ponies. It is good just having them to talk to but of course I am appreciating the riding as well.
The big field up behind us has just had its hay crop cut which means we can now use it for riding. It is very exciting and definitely livens up our hacks. The ponies love it too!
I always try to keep Galahad to just a steady canter the first time we have the field each summer. In the past he has been known to get far too overexcited and just take off across the field and I don’t want him to get the idea that that is okay. Speed is fun but I do like to know that I can stop if I want!
Once we’ve established who is in charge we can have fun and Galahad likes to go fast!
He only has little legs though so Equilab still thinks we’re trotting some of the time!
We have been having a great time – it is always good to get a new place to ride!
