30th June, 2013 Oh You Pretty Things

Nettles admiring himself in a silver balloon this afternoon. It might not have been much of a party but he enjoyed chasing me, the bike, and the balloons around the field. Great for his confidence.

Later we had a visit from Jackie with Charley and Pam with Katie. So many horses are called human names it's difficult to know who is who! Jackie and Pam are the ones on top. A couple of months ago Jackie had a lesson with a traditional trainer who implied that Jackie had been done and that Charley was a difficult horse. Rubbish! A couple of lessons with me and now graduated to ridden work with Amanda Barton and Charley has been reclassified as an endurance horse. Once you are satisfied that a horse has no physical problems, plenty of work can resolve a lot of problems. They appear to be having a great time.

I was worried that Lottie might revert to her wild roots when she went back home but I need have no fear. Her owner Tamsin came up to work with me this afternoon and has just the right attitude, energy and intent to carry on where I have left off. They really are a gorgeous together.

"Thank you so much! You are very talented. And the horses can really tell you truely love and care about them. Will recommend you always. Thanks " TW
