Last night it was Simmer Dim, (Shetland dialect for the Summer twilight on the longest day of the year). A perfect evening.
So, Klængur and I went for a lovely ride together. We didn’t go all that far because someone is feeling a little sluggish having consumed 2kg of whole wheat a few days’ back, but we did manage some creditable tölts and good conversation.
We enjoyed ourselves and both came home smiling, which is my definition of a good ride out. I think Klængur would agree. Forgive me, but I don’t take photos onboard as I need both my hands on the steering wheel!
Today, I rode Dreki – or as he is now known Twitface (bloody autocorrect – go figure!)
We are working our way through some fairly basic training issues and hopefully will come out the other side, realising that walking forward is what I want and trying to scrape me off on the boards is not. Yesterday we did join-up and today we were a bit nicer.
I feel this training lark is going to be a long haul. I am not sure I am up for the challenge on my own but I am still standing so that has to be a plus.
Gah! “Why can’t I have two nice horses?” – she wails!
“Is there enough gin in the world for this?” – she also wails!
