Big day today for Paddy (and me!) – his first jump in 10 months!
He’s been feeling and going so well for me at the moment, and every week that passes I am acutely aware of the fact that the only reason he isn’t doing more (bar the weather we’ve had over the last few weeks) is my over-cautious approach to returning him to full work.
I’ve got to remember that he is not made of glass and he is perfectly capable now of doing more, and his attitude to his work today (and most days really) is his way of telling me that.
Is it ok to feel emotional about a cross-pole?! Because I do!
I love this horse so much!
