Fooling around with the horses...

As some of the country lies under a blanket of snow - here at home we have been visited by Jack Frost every night so everything is frozen solid. The arena resembles a concrete car park. This weekend the weather was so gorgeous that Julie and I were not to be foiled and we headed up to one of my fields that has such a good grass covering that it was brilliant to ride on. There followed a great fun workout which finished with us popping a little cross country jump for fun. My horse Garth and Julie's horse Jerry, were fresh as winter daisies as they hadn't been ridden for a week and we got the feeling they enjoyed the ride as much as we did. This was the first time Jerry has jumped a natural fence since he left the racetrack - looks like he and Julie will be heading for the spring hunter trials!
