    Hi All

    Well we went out again without any other horses. Hubby is training for a marathon so he came on foot jogging/walking. We went 12.5 miles on the chase and stopped for luch at Springslade lodge cafe (they have a tethering post and gave Ozzy some free carrots :smile:) I was very nervous at the beginning but soon settled, we did walk, trot, canter and a couple of little gallops where my hubby ran to the top of a hill and i held Ozzy at the bottom then had a blast up to him. Also had a lovely lesson today.

    Am so proud of my brave pony just had to share hope you dont mind.

    I do the same, my boy is 17.2hh and trotting at speed behind you really makes you keep runing fast! My horse loves my hubby so he is always desperate to keep up with him while hubby is desperately trying to run away from him. All very funny! Well for me anyway and it does get hubby very fit!

    Isn't that funny! Ozzy loves my husband too we do run into issues when he needs a toilet stop in a bush and Ozzy is very interested in the whole thing which I find highly amusing lol!!! I think Ozzy would rather go out following my husband than any other horse :)

    Good luck with Xander. I was at the cannock chase trekking centre a few weeks ago with a friend and the lady was saying about fresians and she mentioned you and Xander :happy:

    really? thats a bit wierd! i was there about a month ago now - trying to get some riding in before xander comes back - and i was telling her i hadnt been for so long because i'd now got my own horse. anyway, when i said he is friesian, she said she was putting one of her mares in foal to a friesian. turns out it's Xanders dad! freaky or what?!!

    i had booked to go on the pub ride yesterday but cancelled as it's just such a lot of money when you have your own to pay for too! i think its rugely way - the chetwynd arms they stop off at though, not the one you stopped at. it's just so awesome though doing a big ride over there with a pub stop in the middle - cant wait to do it on my own horse! you're very lucky you''re already at it.
