Still, while I've been MIA I have got a wee photo I'd like to share with you as I'm really proud of myself. It was my birthday 3 weeks ago and hubby asked what I would like. We've been talking about our 'bucket' list....you know, things you want to do before you die, lol. Anyway, one of mine was to learn to horseride. So the darling bought me 5 lessons, and last week off I trotted (pun intended) for my first one.
Now before you start you have to complete one of those H & S questionnaires and one of the questions was 'what do you hope to achieve'. There were various boxes including walking, trotting etc. I wanted to know where was the box for getting on and off, cos as far as I was concerned that was going to be the hardest thing for me.
Anyway I surprised myself and in the half hour lesson managed to get up to a trot. Here is a photo of me looking rather nervous having just succeeded in getting on 'Caspar'.
Not bad for a 48 year old Grandma who's scared of heights. Photo is one of many taken by my very best friend who was staying last week and my son, who also took piccies of the chickens and other horses!!! There is also some video footage but I'm not sharing that.
Next lesson is on Tuesday and hubby is coming to watch this week.
Hopefully my next post will be a card as I am behind with some birthdays, x
