I thought I’d tell you about last Friday morning where I did something amazing, for me.
I’ve told you how I lost my confidence in horse riding following a bad experience, well on Friday I went down to the horse stables and rode for the first time in nearly a year!
It’s a big deal for me as my confidence is finally coming back after its wobble, I rode a nice black and white horse called Bob who (like Caramel, another horse at the stables) loves being stroked and having the spotlight on him. He’s a race horse and had to have his mane shaved off for a show a couple of weeks ago (So it wouldn’t cover his eyes) and at the moment it feels kind of like fake grass mats, like they have for dogs to play and sleep on. I groomed him a bit and talked to the helpers there, who are all super friendly.
I’m heading back there this coming Friday (17th) to (hopefully) ride and definitely do a bit of grooming again.
