Not much to report on the blog at the moment, Spidey is fully recovered and had a fun trip out to Bowhill Estate today to canter through the woods with his girlfriend Wena. I disappointed him the other day by making him trot in a stubble field, he said I was a complete disgrace to pony ownership and sulked magnificently. I bought him matchy matchy fluff in teal to make up for it.
In other news we had a fantastic yard night out at the Lauder Common riding ball, lots of laughs, not least me demonstrating why it isn't a particularly clever idea to cross a cattle grid in towering heels, in fact I think I will still be laughing about that long after the bruises have faded. Also had a lovely night out catching up with Patricia and meeting Helen while they were riding the St Cuthbert's Way. Such a shame we didn't take part in the pub quiz though, the first two questions were "what holds a saddle on a horse?" and "how do you breed a mule?" - we'd of been quids in...

Chip has been a PC pony this weekend with Eleri Owen of Anglesey/Ynys Mon branch riding her at the area qualifier for the PC national dressage championship. Thrilled with Eleri and Chip, 8th from more than 40, sadly the team missed out on a placing by just half a mark. Chip's owner Linda is delighted, she is not back riding after a (non horse related!) broken wrist so very pleased Eleri and Chip are getting out and doing things!
