Last week we got back to doing what we love 🙂
Head demons had taken over a bit due to the amount of time i’ve had out of the saddle. Holidays and the cut on Cash’s leg had eaten into over 2 weeks of saddle time and i had been struggling to find the motivation to get back on.
Coming back from holiday i spent a couple of days grooming, titivating and generally finding my confidence again (not that anything had happened to lose it!) before i got back on.
So Thursday we headed back into the school for a quiet 20 minutes in walk and trot. Main focus was concentrating on Cash’s connection to me. Moving him on and back and keeping the movements big and flowing.
Saturday we tacked up and headed off out hacking, the first time in 5 weeks! Cash was in his element, loving it! Forward, ears pricked, a little looky at the bluebells but nothing else. Hacked all way home on the buckle end 😀
