A weekend of ponies.

My weekend off was spent with glenatron, as usual. :)

zsazsaroar came to visit on Saturday, and after a lovely pub lunch she and Cash had a little session in the arena. She's had a bit of a rubbish time lately, if she doesn't mind me saying so, and wanted to come and play with the ponies - and why not? Ponies are the best at making things better. Ben just put them in the arena together and let them figure each other out (haha, sounds like the prelude to some sort of gladatorial games! Steph vs. Pony!). Almost immediately, Cash was following her around; she even got him to walk between some poles on the ground. These had been very scary poles until then, apparantly! It was a very beautiful experiance to witness. Ponies are so awesome. zsazsaroar is so awesome. <3

On Sunday, glenatron had three teaching sessions. I didn't take many photos at all, which I kinda regret now ... but it was a very cold day to be a spectator. Too cold to uncrumple myself and use a camera!

On Saturday morning, glenatron and I went to Narnia. I mean the woodland behind his house.

Later, zsazsaroar arrived and Cash followed her.

Following her round corners...

...and through ground poles.

I know Cash is being very rude in this photo - invading Steph's personal space rather a lot - but I like it, because it sort of looks like he's protecting her...

So sweet. <3

Cash approves of Stephs in fur coats. They are good to groom on.

XD What a goon! <3

"Oh hi!" says Cash.

glenatron with Cash, who is looking at Steph. :P

Ben playing with Cash. I don't know why Cash is grumping, it's not like he had to trot when Ben ran - it was his choice to do so! :P

Pretty Cash!

Ben with Georgie and owner on Sunday. That coat billow is the mark of a true hero, fyi.

Carolina, Ben's last session of the day. She was a bit overexcitable - she didn't want to walk politely when Ben was leading her to the arena, and threw everything she had to try and get her own way - but he stuck with her and deftly avoided those flying hooves, too. He decided to start the session by letting her loose so that she could burn off some of that excess energy.

She hooned around for a bit.

She is a very beautiful mover.

Then she decided that, actually, it was maybe nicer to be with Ben instead of running around by herself.

I love the enormous door at the end of the arena - the way the camera had flattened it, it looks like some gateway to another world!


One more day of work and then I'm off for two days! :D Going down south Thursday night, to visit Ben again for his birthday. Yay!

Excellent horse shots as always. <3

And that is true about the coat thing. [nods]
