Yay ponies!

On Friday I took the afternoon off work, so I was able to reach Surrey and glenatron early. It was an awesome weekend. :) Ben made pie! It was tasty. And we made dairy-free pizza, too. Also tasty. <3

I was also very honoured to be allowed to ride out on Cash. :3 On Saturday Ben and I pootled around on him in the school for a bit (not at the same time...), and then we went adventuring for horribly steep hills and extremely excitable baby cows. Hilariously, even on the top hole Ben's stirrups are still waaaayyy too long for me. Also I couldn't get my head round the no contact thing, so I felt like a complete n00b. But Cash looked after me because he is lovely and forgiving.

That afternoon Ben went over to Reading for band rehearsal, and I tagged along to be the socially awkward girlfriend that I am; but man, they are super talented! And such lovely people. Heard some great songs. Might have a new favourite. NO THAT'S A LIE. I'll always love Gifts Of The Sea best of all...

Sunday morning (well ... actually most of the morning was spent having a much-needed lie-in, but shhh) Ben took me out on Cash again.

And I'm going to skip over to the illustrated version now; behold, my first-ever Cash-cam pictures!

Cash and glenatron on Saturday. Super cute!

Running is fun...

XD I love Ben's surprised expression here. <3

Seriously! UNICORN!

Headshot. :3

Grumpin' Cash! Look at that little downturned mouth. :P He did not want to be energetic...

The mighty Zorro!


Cash-cam time. :)

Such a cool place to ride (I like looking at the hills. I just don't like riding down them...).

:) <3

Ben did not make me ride down that hill.

If you look in the top left, you can see two of the feral Exmoor ponies!

Cash was quite sure that he should be in charge of directions ... you can see him thinking about it here, haha. :P

Like I say - best place to ride. Those trails are awesome.

Such. Awesome. Trails.

XD He was actually scratching his chin, but now it just looks like he's too knackered to hold his own head up...

Zorro has teeth! Ben would rather that Zorro didn't make a grab for the halter with aforementioned teeth when it's in that area.


":P," says Zorro. "I have a Ben and you don't. I WIN."

And now another 11 days until I get to see them all again ... sad Sari is sad. My job sucks.

I think Cash's grumpy face was probably cos I'm a fat old lunk and he's far too fine and delicate to pack me around all day. Or maybe it could be to do with his general anxiety about everything in the world. He'll be fine, soon enough. Also, anyone thinking that halter is way low on him in the first few pictures: It is, should be a lot higher up his nose, but as he doesn't pull on it we were fine- if I had been doing more sustained groundwork I would have adjusted it.

I was very happy with how nicely you rode the little guy, I thought you both did great.
