Thought that I would show you why I am not getting as much quilting or gardening done as I should.
Meet my equine friends.
This is Jester, who I ride twice a week. He is 14 years old and great fun to ride. Definitely the boss of the other two and me if he can get away with it! We have come to an understanding, I let him canter if he behaves himself.
Gloria, a 32 year old mare who in her day used to win rosettes when she was a show horse. She is retired now and enjoys being out with her boyfriend Jester. She is a tall horse who towers above me, a bit wild when running free but once put on a halter is as gentle as a lamb.
Finally, sweet little Lily who is cheeky thing. I love her dearly, she's such fun. She is still quite young but is so quick to learn. She went for a walk with me down the lane today, she is good in traffic but the scary monsters in the hedge that I can't see but she can, make her spook a bit. She will calm down the more I take her out.
I started riding again last September after over 10 years, at first it was a bit nerve racking as Jester was full of beans and I was very rusty but now I am back in the swing of things. Its thrilling to ride a horse, I had forgotten the joy being around horses, nothing beats it. They are my bolt hole when life is difficult.
