That'll learn me! Bragging about how calm she is atm compared to a lot of other horses. Humph. Went into the school for a plod. She had other ideas. I had no bp on as farrier had been early doors and I just sort of hopped on - had too many thick layers on for a body protector. She knew. Little monkey / rat (insert lots of names here). We spun. Napped. Hated walking down the long side past the horse-eating caravan. Then when OH offered to lend moral support and walk ahead of us (this usually gets her attention) she nearly ran over him! I think it is safe to assume she's suffering from winter time cheek. Anyhoo, tried to end it on a good note - she's in a funny mood and didn't want out. Preferring to lurk about the yard outside the feedroom! I have much respect for those of you that face a difficult ride!!!!
