Going Solo

One of the things that most people think about horse riders is that they must love the freedom of going out when they want - Yes, there is something to say about that.  However as you know, last year I was injured, then ill ... then DJ was injured ... then I ended up with depression.  So, last year I actually ended up doing little riding.  This year DJ & I have been escorting Ros youngsters ... so t has been good for us both, but not out by ourselves.

This morning was different - Toni is in Turkey, and Ros had to take her dad to the doctor ... so, it was just DJ and me .. and rather that chicken out, I did it!

I got him in, groomed and tacked ... got on ... and headed off up the road.

The ruite we took is only a mile each way, but it has been 2 years since we had been out by ourselves - so is an easy option ...

Or, so I thought.

We didn't see many cars, I will admit, but we saw some of the biggest lorries I have seen in year - add to that tractors, and even a car pick-up truck ... the road was busy.

Just as we got to the crossroads where we were due to turn round, we then had a loose dog barking on a wall.


DJ was brilliant - he didn't spook at all - even when a pheasant flew out right in front of us.

Yes, he did get a cuddle, and more importantly an extra couple of carrots, before his feed.

Then back to his field ith his halo shining brightly.
