Yesterday Jess and I went to a local spot in the forest to pop some logs, it's about a mile and a half from home and is just a bit of a clearing in the forest, with a big dip (from an old marl pit) and lots of downed trees that have been left for us to play with :D Not any decent pics as she was very keen :) they are only little logs 40-70cm ish, but given she's never really been jumped apart from the odd log out in the forest, she did really well and seemed to enjoy it :) We jumped half a dozen different ones and did about 3 laps, did avoid the bounce ones though as she's never had to do that.

Then on the way home I realized we had a tack malfunction, Jess hadn't mentioned it, I just glanced down to check we still had both hoof boots.

And a fab sunset and flocking swallows to end the day :)

Yep, it had completely twisted, the loops for the girth were against her skin :rolleyes: I used this sleeve for years no problem but it's moved the last 3 times I've used it, I might have to go back to one that's wool right around the girth. This is what it should have looked like;

That is funnily enough in the same place, last time I went there to play in 2014! It didn't move that day.

Oh I'm jealous! Looks such fun! Used to pop logs all the time with Ramsey and felt so safe - he was such a little gent. I was told Hogan loves jumping, but that seems a lifetime ahead, from where we are now. Oh well, onwards and upwards ......

What a good girl! I thought she was a princess and the pea, how tolerant of her!
She is, if I had left it there would likely have been a big girth gall to deal with, but she rarely ever complains about things, even if they are hurting her :(
