Thank goodness it was fine today because I was MAD about being a wimp yesterday, so I headed out to the farm to redeem myself. Sorry, had to use an old photo of Zanny because I was focused on one thing - riding - today.
It was a much more suitable situation for riding today as no one was around, all was calm and quiet, and snuggled up in my crash vest, I felt warm enough. We trotted in all directions in the arena and I had a little success controlling her speed. Then we practised cantering and managed whole big circles today, which we've never done before. Zanny was so good, and did everything I asked of her. We're coming along nicely together.
Ps. Mouse, Miss Dog and I planted cosmos, candytuft, radish and coriander seeds today. I watered the trays in the glasshouse and suddenly I could see the sweetpea shoots emerging.
