thir d day off!

because it has rained all day! until after 7 or thereabouts....

and my voice is now failing ... but i've stopped sniffling!

if the weather is ok tomorrow, i will see about riding... back man said "light exercise" not sure what he meant by that, but whether we can go for a hack is a function of there being someone to go with...

Ah, who needs a voice. Glad you are feeling somewhat better. I think a light hack is just what the back man ordered. Hope you can find someone to go with. I bet there are some beautiful places to hack around there if it is anything like the pics you showed up of Molly's pastures. We have a small dyke area, agricultural fields which we are not allowed to ride in, of course. Some people ride through the town but I don't find that very fun. We have done it to say we have done it but it's just walking.

Hope you get your hack tomorrow - we have rain too here today so no riding for me :(.

A hack is always good. Otherwise, just a bit of walk/ trot in the arena, not really asking her to be round and on the bit. Practice turning off the outside rein and perhaps concentrate on getting your seat right on her. 20 minutes or so would be light without challenging her to use herself correctly except to step into that outside rein so she is using her body in an even way.

that's a thought, Jean.... too tempting to ask for more, that's the trouble!
