24th May, 2011 Rider-less

Today was Jenny's last day riding for me before she goes off to take her MRPCH exams in June. I couldn't have done without her over these last few months where she has got on all of our starters and done a fabulous and quiet job. All of the starters will now have a month off from being ridden before we begin again with them in July. Teddy and Guilda both got 11 out of 10 today - Teddy was ridden for only the second time and is already off the lead rein and Guilda had her first ride out on the Forest. Long gaps between training sessions seems to have no detrimental effect and indeed all of these ponies seem to be as far ahead as they would be if they were trained more often or on consecutive days.
