I spent yesterday evening watching my daughter exercise her horse,
I know very little about horses, we are not a horsey family or weren't until S started riding.
I just go along to offer a bit of moral support and for her to bounce ideas off but I think my main function is to do this...
Poo pick, well someone has to do it.
After she has been worked and as it was so warm last night Jelly Bean gets a hose down
she tolerates this very well, although as you can see from her ears ( they are pointing backwards) she would rather not be doing this.
After this she usually gets a treat and she has learnt to do this
she says please, her previous owner must have taught her.
After she has had her treats ( polos ), she gets a quick rub down and then she is put in her pyjamas for the night ( a rug obviously ).
I really enjoy my evenings at the yard especially now that the evenings are light and it's getting warmer, I don't even mind it that much in the winter! S is so lucky to have something that she really enjoys doing and that she is good at, I'm glad that I'm able to be part of it.
P.S. Did you spot the deliberate mistake? S should be wearing a helmet, she is very bad at not wearing it when she exercises JB, despite constant nagging from me.
