Another small milestone and even a pink rosette in Theoden's life. This morning we met up with Jenny to ride the New Forest Hounds 10 mile sponsored ride in aid of the Hampshire Air Ambulance. Theoden grew to 18 hands as we waited to set off but then settled down and was an absolute pleasure to ride. We had some lovely canters on the flat, something I've avoided until now. We met two huge pink pigs and Theoden didn't turn a hair and then we were passed by a train and he didn't even look at that. So happy!
Thanks to the organisers. This was a really lovely ride - fantastic going and very well marked and marshalled. One of the politest too.
