Fun drive in the snow this morning :)

This morning the snow was lovely and soft. Harry and I are both a bit fed up with lunging and the horsewalker so i decided we'd go for a pootle in the school (he is barefoot)

It was lovely, Harry was full of energy and great fun but worked into the contact for the first time. We had great fun

Heres a photo from the carriage


And a cute headshot

Oh wow. That looks amazing. I really do think that one day I'll learn to drive, especially when I see pics like these.

Brilliant! Lovely pics and what joy said, one day....I quite fancy the idea of carriage driving, but have yet to master the art of having control from the saddle!lol.
Lovely horse too btw.

Oh no Jane, not sure why
It really is good fun, I am not a confident rider but driving I am so much more relaxed and happy, although I do have trust in my pony.

He's only been broken in for 3 weeks and I'm sure it's not a bad thing to expose him to lots of different situations (snow being one of them)
He's doing brilliantly and I am very I proud of him
