After our busy weekend we have had a nice, quiet week. It has been a bit slippery to ride in the field so we have had some lovely hacks. It has all been very relaxing! We did manage a good gallop in my neighbour’s field before that got slippery and Galahad behaved very well, although we were surprised by a herd of sheep over the brow of the hill. They are the sort of sheep that stand and stare instead of running away which made it a bit unnerving even for me!
However, the idea of Galahad taking off wasn’t too much of an issue. The grass was very lush and it was taking all my energy to stop him eating. He had been in the yard all day and was very determined!
We still had a bit of an argument about direction and speed – I wanted to walk down the hill away from the gate so we could canter round the field and back to the gate. He didn’t see the point and wanted to cut the corner at speed. I won though and I think the lesson has been learnt.
Galahad has also been acting as a table this week. I dropped in to see my neighbour and as she wasn’t in decided to leave a note. There was nowhere else I could use!
He made an admirable table and stood stock still so I was very pleased with him. A good week all round.
