Pleased to report that I had a fabulous ride on Theoden today with Lindy out on Petra. He was so calm and soft. We went past all the roadwork in hand to begin with and then got on him in the inclosure. We met cyclists, runners and Duke of Edinburgh students. Later we met a horse and trap and some donkeys and took the opportunity to follow them. Although I would love to have been able to keep him barefoot, he just wasn't coping with the New Forest gravel and I wanted to remove that worry before it affected his mind as well as his feet. He's now got his first ever set of front shoes on and we'll see how he goes in those.
