30 Day Equestrian Challenge, Day #2

30 Day Equestrian Challenge

Day 2 - The last time you rode a horse and what you did
The last time I rode a horse was yesterday! Heh, what a surprise. Although the last time I rode a horse I did manage to reach a huge milestone with Vallu, as we were able to go for a relaxed canter round the woods when hacking out! Since this spring I have been trying to get Vallu to chill when hacking out, but our trips usually end up being cut short by a spooking, cantering/piaffing Vallu who decided that the birds singing in the trees are too scary. During the last 2 weeks, V has somehow become more relaxed, and now appears to enjoy going out for a walk. Fingers crossed this will continue once we're in Nottingham, and then we could go for really long hacks during the weekend!
Vallu was more interested in eating everything within his reach rather than walking on in the woods. He also always manages to get a huge branch instead of just a mouthful of leaves, and he spent the next 5 minutes chewing this one!
First time in the woods 2013, I was leading him around on the ground
