She frustrates me, drives me mad, makes me smell funny, costs my a small* fortune. But when we’re on form, we’re flying. I really try to ride her as often as I possibly can, and when I’m in good form- she’s in good form.
She got her tail done especially for the day … I love plaiting tails, and hers is a dream as it’s so straight. And there’s no chance in hell she’d kick, it would require too much energy!
And always loves to have a good look around when she gets to the events, munching her massive haynet all the time. I should really only give her the net when she’s been ridden, but she hates travelling on an empty stomach. Don’t we all?
But ultimately she brought home the bacon-
We came second in the dressage and won our small hunter showing, then reserve Champion in the Showing Championship class. For the picture though- no smiles- just the usual get this bridle off me face!
My “grooms” pony also was out and about, as it’s pony camp this week. And grey ponies are always a challenge.
But he really is the love of her life- I think the smile says it all.
And even better he’s stabled beside HIS best friend!
More horses this weekend as we are helping at the eventing. I just LOVE summer!
