Autumn has returned again and so did I, to riding that is. I’ve not ridden for two weeks due to a dodgy wrist caused by use of my long cane which I use to get around whilst I’m waiting for a new guide dog.
But today, I returned to the saddle.
I helped out as usual, getting a lovely greeting from Shadow and proceeded to brush him.
I also picked out Kenny’s feet by my self which was cool. He was such a good pony.
I rode him first today. And what a pleasure it was. We got lovely canters after I woke him up but each time I asked, I got one. Each one got better and better though which was nice.
After lunch, I chose to ride Bella. I even asked if in my next lesson, if I could have her again as she’s like my comfort blanket horse in the school.
She was good and we even got a stride of canter to. I really was pleased with her. Considering I haven’t ridden her in a while, it was a pretty good ride.
Was definitely glad to be back in the saddle!
