Today is a Day of Shite (rain and wind) so Daisy had an indoor riding lesson from her trainer, Bjørn Roar Larsen.
She started off by riding Taktur, her 6 year old Icelandic stallion.
First they warmed up on a loose rein.
Then work on walk.
Tölt – this is not a particularly easy gait for Taktur but he can do it if asked nicely.
Trot (I love Taktur’s trot – it is beautiful and the photos do not nearly do it justice).
And then a big fat well-done.
Next up was Kappi – Daisy’s competition horse. He had been waiting patiently in the wings.
Again, warming up on a loose rein.
Tölt – Kappi has the a lovely tölt. He really motors.
(they did canter but my camera had run out of steam by then so I missed it. They also worked on both reins and did masses of walk which, again, I managed to miss.)
Daisy worked hard with her horses while it poured with rain and blew a gale outside.
I watched with Little Miss Sulky.
Or Little Miss Abject Misery as she goes by these days. She does do the most dejected face.

Oh, by the way, does anyone want me to do the Advent Calendar for this year?
Let me know and I will create if requested.
