What a brilliant day. First outing post lockdown 2.0. And a new venue too. We headed off to Heckingham Hall for a lesson with Portia Howard.
Wasn’t sure what to expect if I’m honest. My expectations were pretty low as it was our first outing in a while. And when Buddy came off the lorry and pulled himself up to his full 18HH, I feared it would be a challenging lesson.
How wrong I was. He quickly settled and jumped everything – first time, every time. Including the water tray. Learnt lots in a short space of time.
It felt really good to be out and about again.
This is the face of a very happy boy after he gave himself a mud pack when we got back.
