Living abroad for most of my 20years I wasn't able to ride whenever I wanted, language didn't help and military stables- Don't get me started!
When I did start, however, all my holidays were spent mucking out, poo picking, grooming, painting- everything!
My problem with Duffy is holding kids on and leading her... she's so big, with my dad's horse, if anything happened you'd be able to pluck a kid off, but I don't stand a chance- even with my 6ft2 dad its not a good idea
. Give it 6 months for our training to come along and we'll see how it goes :)
