Day 05- Your first fall
Well ... the first one I remember (although I suspect I'd fallen before) was when I was riding at the Warboys stables. I was about 7 or 8 and I was on a skewbald cob called Chrissie. Chrissie was notorious for stopping to eat the grass at the edge of the arena, and I wasn't strong enough to pull her head up. So yeh: we were doing the usual 'trot round the arena and stop when you reach the back of the line' thing, only Chrissie stopped in the corner and started eating. I pulled and I kicked but I couldn't move her, so my instructor came running at her with a lunge whip. Chrissie, understandably, had an OMGWTF moment, panicked because she was trapped in a corner, and shot off across the arena. I, however, stayed where I was. XD I just remember being totally inconsolable afterwards and needing a lot of persuasion before I'd get back on. :P

Some phone photos of the ponies this afternoon. Magic has kisses for you all!



Magic says LOOK AT MY MIGHTY BEARD!



Exactly 3 months and 3 weeks old.



She was leaping around, but my phone is too slow - I'd click it when she was in full leap, and all I'd get was a picture of her landing. :P











Then she hid behind Mama Bea and tried to peer over her back. XD Almost there, but not just yet...



Some of the boys in their news indoor yards. Super cosy. :)

Those indoor yards look like a nice set up. Are they sharing the barn with the hay?
