Finally got Mike in the saddle......

Yep, after all these years he came out for a hack with me for the first time this morning


He's not taking up riding, you understand, it's just a bit of cross training cos apparently he needs to work on his abs and upper body strength for running......
 

Well, Gandalf certainly gave his arms a workout, having sussed straight away this guy doesn't really know what he's doing and he could therefore stuff his face at every opportunity. Ches was good as gold, knowing I won't let him get his head down out on a hack, and merely confined himself to trying to steal some of G's ill gotten gains directly from his gob

We did a nice little amble in the sunshine, nothing too strenuous first time out, map & pics here:
He wasn't too creaky afterwards either, although has now gone out for a run, muttering about having to get his muscles back into the right shape.....

First of many, I hope :-)

Yeah! It's nice, isn't it!
G will be riding Flurry soon while I get going with my daughter's horse. It'll be fun :-)

Yep, hoping he can keep the old boy ticking over once I get started with Sky & Kinna.....but being a bloke he'll probably want to go charging around cross country with one of the youngsters instead ;-)
