I hope all of you reading this are getting on ok in the current situation, as so many have said it really is unprecedented and it is certainly very surreal and scary times we are living through at the moment.

We are very lucky compared to so many as we still have something to get up for every day as obviously the horses still need caring for and we have decided at the moment to keep our horses in gentle work.  I will post some videos from my You Tube channel showing some of the pole work exercises we use, these exercises will be simple exercises using not to many poles and all are set in our 40m x 20m arena, meaning that most people will be able to creat them. Please click below link for my first video of Mick and Eric working through some poles.

Like so many other parents I have my two girls with me full time so I am trying to do some home schooling, in fact that is exactly what I'm doing at this moment, multi tasking!!  Both girls are being very good and although Ila is very sad that she doesn't get to see her friends everyday she is enjoying the freedom of having the yard to play in, and the trailer has become the spy headquarters! Although typically of horses we did need the trailer last week when Eric managed to cut himself and needed at trip to to vets to check it was just superficial as the cut was fairly close to the fetlock joint, the good news is its just superficial.

 

We were meant to be at the Burghley Pony Club Huntertrials in preparation for the event season, we decided not to dwell on this fact as I think everyone nation wide has something they are missing out on so we decided to run it at home, please see below link.

In between everything else I am trying to work through the back log of repairs I have in, maybe I will have a tidy work shop at the end of all of this.
