Thankyou both. My friend has called me this morning to say she's picking up a loan horse - 16.2hh (a midget as she called him - but to my 5ft1", practically a giant again) haha - so after him settling in, I should be back in the saddle and my journey will continue.
My goal is to eventually ride my mare - she's an OTTB who i'll send for retraining first - my sons have both rode her and she was excellent, but doesn't understand leg cues - so i'll regain my knowledge first so I don't confuse the poor girl by giving her the wrong instructions, so hopefully by summer, we'll start getting Foxy fit again - she's got the life of Riley at the moment, looking after her "foal" (he's a 10 month old giant) but i'm sure she'll welcome a bit of a challenge again.............
I'll be back :)
