If I could quadruple "like" this, I would! Very comforting! I do feel for you though - they are total schizophrenics when they do this and when they start, you think "Oh he'll settle" and they rarely do, until the next ride, when you're tensing for the naughties, and they don't come! You're lucky with your percentages with Belle though - Hogan's more 50/50! That front feet thing though, it's lethal! Never had that with Ramsey, but I'm learning fast!!I had a night'mare' this morning! She came in from the field, about half way up the track decided she didn't want to come in and started prancing and dancing about - next thing up she goes and struck out at me with her front feet actually hit me in the ribs, not hard thankfully! To say I am shocked is an understatement, very occasionally she behaves like a total twit and it's always this time of year, I put it down to her being in season and the fresh grass.
Anyway decided to go for a hack (bad move) and boy was she silly, we jogged everywhere, spooked at everything and then proceeded to leg it with me down our woodland path when she saw a lamb next to the fence....... so @Huggy you are not alone, Belle is a saint 99.99% of the time, just today was the 0.1% when she wasn't . Onwards and upwards
Busy busy! You're putting us to shame with all this activity!!!Goodness - I have got a bit behind, We had a week away and then I was busy.
2 nice hacks around the block
Week 2 - lots of roadworks, so SJ schooling on Saturday and a very quick hack on Sunday. I was supposed to be going to a fun ride but my lorry has broken down again
This week I had a nice long hack with my fellow livery and I got off Harvey to open a gate and then remounted. This is a big milestone for me as I haven't done it since I fell off remounting nearly a year ago (and I still have the scar on my face!). My lorry is still broken but my YO very kindly put me on the insurance for hers so Harvey and I went off to the Ragley Hall fun ride and had a great time with a lady I occasionally meet to fun rides.
So full he can't move!
Greys are such fun at this time of year!
Harvey wasn't too keen on coming out. He didn't bother getting up even while I put his head collar on
Waiting for my riding buddy
Ready to go
