Spice of Life

I love nothing more than working with my horses in the arena. Riding, groundwork, long reining, working in hand, lunging or liberty –  I love it.

And I know they enjoy coming into the arena as they are always willing and happy to do so, and often reluctant to leave, but I also know that it is good for them to have a change of scene.

So we also go hacking very often.

 

A lovely woodland track ride with my daughters Rosie and Florence on Storm and Dragon. Nice for a canter!

A soggy ride along the lanes in the rain with Uralita and Whisper.

I think it is so much more enriching for the horse to take them out and about and having a change from working in the arena.

 

Have some fun and go hacking! Variety is the Spice Of Life!
