Hoofing it up

I know I’ve blogged about them before but I have to do another one to say a huge thank you to South Sligo Stables. I had the chance to go around by myself on Lily today. Lily is a bit giddy ( a bit like myself) and I was a bit nervous.

Frank and Kellie were so patient and let me go around the arena….I was all over the place to begin with but I got there in the end. It’s now I realise that until you are on your own on a horse you don’t know if you can ride at all….because in a riding school situation the horses tend to follow the horse in front.  So it was brilliant to get a chance to have a go on my own. I was worn out when I finished and I’m still heavy-handed with the reins which I hope I’ll control soon.

It was a brilliant day and I can’t praise Kellie and Frank enough, they are the most friendly people you could wish to meet. I feel so at home there. 🙂 Sorry about the old pics I didn’t take any today.
