After the excitement of the past few weeks it has been nice to be back home spending time with the ponies.
Obviously, I have had a fantastic time while I was away but it was pretty tiring and of course it meant that I wasn’t riding the ponies. Now though I am back home and back on the ponies which is lovely.
The ponies are enjoying themselves too. I turned them out a few days ago without checking the gate across the other side of the field because it is always closed.
It had however been accidentally left open after a dog walk and naturally the ponies noticed – they were soon through the gate and munching on the lush grass on the other side.
Luckily there were two more gates between them and the road.
It taught me the lesson though – always check all the gates!
