Seraphina was a star today, Ali wanted to ride but Gandalf has a nasty bite on his back so I don't want to ride him til it's gone. This meant that as Fina was with Mav over the weekend, we had to go and get her and bring her back to the others on her own.
Ali got on and headed down the hill......and off she
went, without even a backwards glance at Mav! She seemed quite happy to follow
the car, every now and then she'd come up alongside the door and poke her nose
in the window to check I was still there!
She had a bit of a hesitant moment going past some cows, but didn't spook, just
moved away from the fence a bit! The only spook we had was when a horse down the
road unexpectedly stuck its head over a hedge, obviously took her by surprise.
Very pleased with her, that's the first time she's been out alone since she
Then we got to Marianne's and went into the carriere to do
a bit of practise for the Interdressage Handy Horse class, she was a bit
distracted by Marianne's horse, Gimy, who was racing round the paddock next to
her, but soon settled down.
Then we turned her out with Gimy, who's currently on his own til Marianne can
find a new horse, they had a fine old hooley round!
