This horse Ben will take good care of me. I really like him

CW, this is fantabulous news! You look SOOOOO good mounted on Ben in English tack! Yay! You're going to have to let your helmet out a notch just to contain your big smile!

Grace, I really like Stan's suggestion about doing something to lessen the slipperyness of wet floor mats. I wouldn't be surprised if that would help. If nothing else, it would "feel" better to Kes which might make her feel more secure while traveling. I think once they get frightened, it feeds on itself...I have one old 33 year old guy who has scrambled in the trailer in the past, and I know that he sweats buckets, literally, when trailering. He makes such a puddle that his flooring is slicker than the others just from the sweat.

Kes is a lucky lady to have the market cornered on horse massages on demand....

Not a lot of time, farrier will be here to do the young horses so I need to crack on.

First off, Grace look at how much room she has, some horses like to spread their legs when travelling and if she has a full partition this does not allow them to do so. I had one mare that would not move in a straight trailer without a partition or, if she was travelling in a horse box side on but put a partition in the trailer and she would go down. She would spread her front legs several feet apart to balance and if she couldn't she would panic.

CW That is great news. He looks a sane and kindly gentleman of a horse.

Things should be back to normal from Friday, Mum is going back Thursday. She had an overhaul yesterday, hairdresser first thing then chiropodist in the afternoon so she was well pleased.

I have been watching a lot of the Olympics, UK has done very well especially in the Equestrian events. The individual show jumping this afternoon and then the Dressage individual on Thursday.
What has been great about the dressage is that the BBC has a woman commentating who really knows her stuff about the movements and as the tests are being ridden so she explains what the horse/rider has done wrong or praises the movements - she doesn't over talk, criticise or make inane comments to hear her own voice, but is quietly informative.

Off to get the hound pups exercised, let the birds out, feed the horses! Take care one and all.
