Ooops & Ouch

Its been a long time since i've ridden a horse and also riding with damage to my stomach. Must remember that carrying saddles & dismounting involves a lot of contact with the stomach!

Having said that walk, trot & canter was lovely! A free ride, for helping out in the snow. Good deeds pay off. Good boost to the confidence too.

But 3 hours at the yard & yesterday evenings emotional breakdown left me shattered, so much so that i slept for an hour and 20 mins this afternoon.

However tomorrow morning i am supposed to be running for that length of time! Eek!

2 people had something to say about this:

Glad you enjoyed the ride.

Thank you.

I did have to work hard but once i got him going he has a lovely trot & canter. Eventually mnaged to sustain 2 circuits of the school in canter.

Was nice to get to know what the horses really can do instead of them just walking round slowly with the odd trot like i normally see them.

I ache this morning though! Oh well no time for complaining, need to get running before my gym class.
