I cursed myself
I went for my first ride since January (except for Dubai) at a yard I'd found on Sunday.
Turn up to tack up, and she points in to the school at a haflinger. My face looked like this :/
I check out ponio being ridden by the kid and impressed that he is forward without having to kick him on constantly, and he is soft in his mouth and no gadgets.
I was pleasantly surprised. He was soft, forward and willing.. did EVERYTHING I asked of him. I was pulled up by the instructor "He only has little legs.. he can't push more!" Aha poor fella.
I put him to bed... he's 24!! I'd have expected him to be 14ish, no sign of stiffness or slowing down.. he's a cracker!
I feel sad I won't be riding him again, but they're putting me on their M level mare who has competed internationally!
