So we have turned around the disaster of my fall into one of the best summers ever. We had an amazing last minute holiday in The Gower Peninsular, our first holiday for over 20 years. We stayed at a beautiful 5* self catering cottage called Slade Barn, the dogs were able to come too. We had the most incredible week walking and exploring the stunning Welsh coast, eating delicious food and enjoying fabulous weather.
On our return I didn’t feel quite up to XC riding right away so have registered Captain for British Dressage, in his first week we have won 5 classes and qualified for an Area Festival. Love Capitano as despite his cheeky moments, he tries so hard to please.
So that’s 2 things we would never have done if I hadn’t had a fall, which shows every cloud has a silver lining.
We have also been out show jumping a couple of times and have now entered some Eventing in a few weeks.
Oh and almost forgot we have a new team member meet Hitchhiker, a feral kitten who hitched a ride under a car from a local farm and then fell off, landing on the main road. He’s not feral anymore he’s very friendly now.
