from the new yard, and Molly barely put a foot wrong. She only had one blip - that was when a van was coming down a track from our right that she couldn't see but could hear, and when it appeared it was loaded with hay - rather think she wanted to follow the hay!
we went a good bit further than original plan, but one bridleway has definitely been made inaccessible (we're complaining again! - people don't want flytippers & motorbikes on rainton meadows, fair enough, but we want to ride on bridleways!) and then the last part she led, along a narrow boggy track becoming overgrown now
as we leave and come back to the yard, we have to go through traffic lights for the water board's road works, good as gold with all of that
very pleased indeed, and her brain will be refreshed as well.
and we'd no sooner led the horses into the barn than it started raining, so we timed that perfectly (we'd thought we were going to get wet at one point!)
was sorry to hear that one of the horses at my previous yard had to be PTS recently - fractured shoulder, I am told, very old horse. very sad.
