Today was quite a busy day with variable weather so we took the horses for a hack out in the morning. Freddie couldn't come out on the hack as there werent enough leaders but when we got back in the field he did lunge on both reins- after a little persuasion. In the afternoon Alice, Amelia and Jemma went to Solihull Riding Club to volunteer to help with the British eventing. They helped to carry the sheets for the dressage and got to watch the Cross country and the showjumping. In return for helping they were given vouchers that can be used at the club for hiring the school or paying for show entry fees. The afternoon lessons went well with Mia (5 years) riding Bertie on her own for the first time.
I am the Chair of the Committee that runs Summerfield Stables. I like helping out with the horses as much as I can but I find it hard to find the time.
