Back in the Saddle

Back in the saddle for us all.


While everyone else went out on their horses, I warmed up Haakon in the indoor school ready for a quick impromptu lesson.  Our tölt is very flat and I needed help.

I was told that it all starts with the outline so we worked on that first.

Then Bjørn rode him to get the feel of Haakon. He hasn’t ridden him for a while and of course instantly Haakon went beautifully.  I was very envious.


Meanwhile, BeAnne was helping Taktur.  We caught her “helping” a lot.  Norty little girl.


Then I got back on Haakon and off we went again – our tölt hugely improved.  I have much to work on, I can see, and we will practice, practice, practice.


During the cool-down, I let BeAnne up for a ride too.  She had been asking nicely and we did a few laps together.

A reward snack for Haakon while BeAnne had a rest.

Like most little girls, I think she dreams of riding ponies!


(now starts to wonder whether a Minion could be bribed when a bit older!)

    I love that photo of you and BeAnn on Haakon! Looks like all 3 of you are right where you want to be…

    I know the feeling! Antoine just needs to look at my gang and they are all butter wouldn’t melt.
