    I rode today for the first time in five months

    I walked mainly around the paddocks then had a little trot. It was quite cold so my clothing was layered but it felt great to be riding again. I stopped riding my little Fell mare as I felt I was getting to heavy for her. I have been on a healthy eating and excercise plan for the last 5 months. I have lost over a stone and half in that time and planning to lose more still. I dropped a Jodphur size to so far.


    I cannot wait till she and I am fit enough to hack out together again. But for now I am enjoying being back in the saddle again. I am looking forward to a summer of rides again. I was grining like a cheshire cat.

    I might try that riding up the road and running back it would help me get even slimmer :)

    I am afraid if I tried that, I would not make it back! LOL But what a good idea for getting both of you in shape!

    I mean, Dee and I are both shapes...it just happens to be round.

    The best would be to jog OUT, and then get on and ride back, but if you are like me you have to mount at home from your trusty mounting block.

    We are both on the chunky side LOL But she is right height for me. I can climb aboard easily and if I fall off it not to far to fall. I have 7 ponies so its up to me to get myself down to a suitable riding weight for them.
