PB you have to talk to my wife about the 100k or the plane, good luck with that.

I have become confused. I thought we walk the dog but ride the horse. I took bugs down to the beach this morning and we walked for a mile or so then turned around and did the return trip, the object was to get him used to the surf when its running, Waves 500 yards out to sea so quite some noise. He did not want to walk throuh the creek but got over it. A good time was had by all, but no ride this was a boys bonding session.

As a treat I allowed him to munch on the new grass outside the kitchen.

He is looking a little thin but as you can see the rain brought the grass, pity there was not enough for her to wash the windows. Well that's just the way it goes some times. Now back to cooking dinner

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

But on a serious note we often ride 6 hours with a lunch stop and at least two litres of water not to mention the coffee before starting and then add to that the sound of the babbling brook we have lunch by.

O/K when he is taking his time. Stella it does not matter fast walk or slow she is smooth.

As for getting him into horse riding he may chose a different style than yourself which means two tow vehicles and two horse floats and saddles and on and on and on. But I wish you well. When I started riding I arrived home with a horse called Savannah. Very young 2.5 years, green broke, and huge, clydesdale TB cross. Carefull what you wish fore but good luck with it.

He looked pretty decent up there, dressage saddle and all, and walked around the arena twice. He said it was pretty scary and hard, and now has a lot of respect for all that I do in the saddle. Step one complete in "operation get hubby a horse"
Your hubby looks good up there
Good luck with horse hunting
