Sorry! Been very busy. What with the tree down, the fence needing repaired, horses to get fit! Never mind all the other everyday things needing done! I was minded today, that the reason I ride, is the sheer exhilerating feeling of my own sense of silence! The quiet, meanderings of the horse. Well, not really meanderings, but sort of guided by me? Not usually! Gracie tends to wander, I put her on the right direction, and off she goes.
The thing is, we were out today, and it kind of came to me, there I was, sitting contently, not really paying too much attention, when all of a sudden, a covey of Partridge flew out from the hedgerow! Before I could react, it was all over, Gracie? Not really bothered. Didnt seem to give a toss!
So I came to the realisation that, it is true what they say, the mood you are in, when riding or dealing with horses, is the mood they will adopt. I think. No! Thats what I believe.
