For some reason the gods have decided to grace us with nice weather on two sundays running (why they choose not to do it on a saturday I'm not sure). Anyway we took advantage of the break from the rain and went for some nice hacks out on the farm. My friends took some pics and video of Toby and I doing our thing. The video will be published in the next post since I'm having trouble with Blogger uploading it. You can see in the video that Toby is fighting the whole way in, he was full of beans that day and he just wanted to "go go go!" I even got a few bucks out of him which was suprising.
Anywhere heres a picture of us doing the little log. Toby is a mess at the moment with his yellow tail and shaggy fur but he still looks cute.
I'm not a natural rider and have to work hard at everything when it comes to riding. But that doesn't matter because I love it, and it is worth it when I'm flying through the air on my horse, or galloping along a sandy beach. My horse fufils me.
Jack is a 15.2hh, 10 year old, black thoroughbred gelding. He was 3 years old when he was rescued off the racetrack. Before I had the opportunity to buy him, Jack was showjumped at successfuly at 1.20m and did a few One Day Events. We met in Septemeber of last year and I immediately fell in love. Since then, we have competed our first Pre-Training together and my confindence has sky rocketed. He is my soul mate.
