Hacking out again


Have just started to hack out again, after our scare with the pigs last year. Last week we made it to the barn, behind which they lurk but yesterday we went past and round the BIG field - we we out for an hour and he was fairly well behaved, apart from trying to pull the reins out of my hands most of the way round. I can recommend the brave pants I seem to get from Badminton every year :P

Well done, I still have the odd wobble on Cara when I am out on my own. I am fine with others, but she just does look at everything and can be daft, but I keep to what I call the loop where I feel comfortable. Glad you got over the pig thing (hopefully). Have to say Cara is very springy at the moment and in season as all the mares are. Midge calls it very aptly the Spring ping:heh hee: The happy hacker award does help doesn't it. Last year was a mess what with weather and my crunch in field, but I'm hopefully going for more than my two Bronze rosettes, although anything is good. :clap::clap:

Yes, I managed a Merit rosette 2 years ago and very nice it was too. Think I managed about 39 hours that year.

Well done, I would just love to get sufficient confidence back to ride Thyme outside the school. I am getting lots of lessons and am feeling much more confident in the school. At the end of Thursdays lesson we had a cool down walk around the yard with instructor walking next to me so a gradual improvement.

You sound like me Foxy - I have spent years confined to the school but I am lucky I now have a very understanding 'wingman', who will hack out with me as far, or as near, as I feel safe to go. Some days I can still only make it 100yds down the road but it all adds to my confidence every time I get back in one piece :)
