For some reason my YouTube have started recommending me videos containing info on how to lose wheight fast. After a day like today where no food can stop my craving it feels kinda insulting that it’s doing that. Anyone been into my YouTube wanting to give me a hint or two? Haha
Today I’ve literally not left the sofa beside going to the fridge or toilet. I promised myself to take a full day off and after yesterday shenanigans it wasn’t like I could do anything else anyway.
The last 12 hours has been spent on watching a clinic given by Carl Hester some years ago, but still very insightful on how to get those hind legs moving. I managed to find a new girth, which I ended up buying on a German site. Last time I did that I totally misunderstood what I was buying so hopefully that ain’t happening this time. I also found the browband I wanted on eBay. So now all horsy Christmas gifts are bought. Horse-shopping ban is back on.
Mr.Grumpy had a day off today as well. I must honestly say it felt nice not having to go to the stable. Sometimes it good to take a step back to figure out what you want to do next. I’ll write another post on my goals for 2017.
On Friday we went outside after having a ride in the indoor arena. Inside he was a nightmare and wouldn’t go on the bit or listen to the leg, but outside he perked up. A bit too much for my taste, but we did manage to survive “super scary” goats, bird and a hawk. The hawk had decided to land on a branch of a tree and I had to ride 2 meters under it. I must admit I almost closed my eyes and prayed that it wouldn’t fly away just as we passed it. But it decided to stay put and Mr.Grumpy didn’t notice it luckily. I noticed it was good for him to be outside, so need to start forcing myself to do it more in the future.
