    ...because I rode yesterday! For the first time in nearly a month.

    I always get nervous when I ride for the first time after a break and usually stick to walking around and doing some lateral work, but yesterday some madness overcame me and I walked, trotted and cantered!!!

    Not once, but twice!!

    and he was a good boy, didn't do anything crazy when I asked him to canter - other than flick is ears as if to say "I'm sorry, did you just ask me to canter?!?!?!" He got a bit strong, but calmed down when I did a half-halt and trotted again when I asked.


    I believe this fit of madness was down to my new reins that KV kindly made for me! They are brilliant! Sadly when I tried to take a photo the battery on my camera died on me :(

    I'm going to try taking D'Mother with me some day next week, I'll leave her sitting in the car with a magazine while I ride, and hopefully I'll get some pics of my reins!!

    :D
