My rest is well deserved as I went for quite a long hack with two pony friends on Saturday. I had already met Grumpy Amy but I also got to meet her Highland friend Iona, who was not at all grumpy. I had to travel in the box on wheels to get there. I'm very used to that now and just walk straight in.
Like last time there was a lot of human chatting while I stood tied up on their yard, but eventually the humans got us all tacked up and we were ready to go.
This is me with grumpy Amy. I led to start with and headed off at a very smart walk that my Highland friends struggled to keep up with. I loved being in front but Lynette said I had to learn to go in the middle and at the back too.
That's ok I didn't mind where I went. Though I did get told off when I kicked out at Iona, well she was getting too close to me and I was scared she might kick me, not that she looked like she would.
I even got to have my first canter carrying a human. It was a little tricky to get my balance and the ground was a little slippy but I managed ok and didn't rodeo or do anything naughty. Mostly because it was towards the end of the ride and I was getting tired by then. We had done some trotting too.
I made Lynette feel safe enough she had ditched her back protector and she even managed to take a couple of compulsory ear pony photos. These are sooo cool my first ever ear photos. Hopefully the beginning of many to come, Cyril has loads!
I think I did ok, though Lynette says I'm not allowed to kick other horses, so I'm going to work on that. Anyway Lynette should be here with more hay soon so I had best get in the queue - behind Cyril that is!!!!!!
