So I've managed to free up some cash and put it in a safe hidey hole so Brock doesn't absorb it lol. I could buy a pair of shoes or a blouse... NOPE! Going to spend it on a ride on one of the school horses with my former instructor
I haven't been on a non-green horse in about a year now - Brock and Star have had my butt to themselves - so it'll be fun riding a horse that isn't planning a gruesome death for me (unlike Brock) and knows things (unlike Star). I admit, Star is a deal of fun to ride but she's also very small and I prefer bigger horses (despite being munchkin sized). So hoping to ride either my favourite 16.2hh OTTB or the 17.1hh giant thingy (think he's a WB but he's an odd looker). Both are hot enough to keep me from being bored but they know their stuff.
So pretty excited - not sure I remember what it's like to ride a horse with solid training behind it, but last time I got on the OTTB after mths of riding Brock it was like "Omg yay, he's not trying to kill me" and I realised how much riding Brock had improved my seat and aids, because he's so unforgiving and you have to really 'listen' to him with your body for the slightest resistance. School horses just don't punish you physically when you forget to pay full attention or ask something the wrong way...
So yay! Can't wait to just go for a nice breezy canter in company!
