    Todays long reining started really well (we've had a couple of goes without saddle before)


    Sadly just after this as I was stopping for the day as she had been so good, a crow flew up, spooked her and she dashed the reins out my hands :( so back to the drawing board. We tried a little to get her settled but she had learnt her own power and, just like Hattie used to, she decided that halter bolting was good fun. So, I've put up a round ish pen to keep her contained until she gets the idea again. Might do some join up too later. I seem to remember this is exactly what I had to do with Hat's.

    She's going so well - and it sounds really windy too
    What a pain that crow showed up - What is it with those thing? They sit on my ménage fence like something out of a Stephen King horror film staring at me when I'm schooling in there just waiting to fly up at the wrong moment - and if its not them its the bloody dogs digging holes and sending stones and soil at us - they never do it any other time.

    The crows, or rather Jackdaws, live on my disused chimney pots.
    Woody doesn't mind them.

    Ready to go

    Love that pony
    We've always had trouble with crows etc trying to nest in used chimneys pots - get that here too but the biggest 'shock' I had was to see a young turkey vulture perched up there one day

    She's doing so well, the long reining's paid off as she looks so responsive to turning in quite a tight area. Really impressed with her and what you've done to get to this stage

    My friend Tiff had a go at lunging her so she could be used to hearing instructions from others, she was really good. Tiff being younger and lighter than me will hopefully be helping with furthering her backing







    Gilda now also has her own Wintec Wide saddle (an amazing bargain from ebay)
