I spent last weekend on a choir trip to Holland. I had a fantastic time but obviously it meant that I didn’t get any riding. However, I did get to see some Friesian horses in their native land.
There was a Friesian at my riding instructor’s yard for a few months. He was absolutely beautiful so I was looking forward to seeing some more. I never got very close to them but they were lovely to see.
I also discovered that some of Friesland has Konig ponies roaming more or less wild much as the Exmoor ponies do. It is a breed I have not seen in real life before and it was very exciting, even if I only got to see them from the coach.
I am home now and very much looking forward to getting back in the saddle. I am hoping that now the clocks have gone back there will be just enough light to squeeze in a ride before work.
