    Horses, Studies & Work

     

    As usual, all the horses had their annual break from October to December, as we are big believers that they need a break to bring them back stronger next year. All six horses come in overnight then go out in the day, whatever the weather, but are not worked at all. During their break, they all had a lovely massage from my friend, Elle, a visit from the physio, teeth checked and vaccinations to ensure they are super healthy and happy horses. They quite enjoy their holidays although they are always excited when their shoes get put back on and they start their work on the horse walker again.

They’ve all been fantastic (despite some occasionally miserable weather) and we’re really starting to gel as a partnership now.
