I was away for a long weekend in Ireland from Thursday to Sunday evening visiting family. My mother stayed in Lux having been back the previous weekend so she very kindly minded the hairy children by turning them out and bringing them back in Saturday & Sunday.
Sometimes she really is just a moron! Best to draw a line in the sand and start again next time.

Nancy on the other hand was an absolute angel! She had retained our lessons from last week. She was less squirrely on the left rein, we didn't need our 10m circles or shoulder in to get a nice walk. As always her trot work was lovely as we worked through serpentines, changes of rein and played with w/t transitions. Even our canter was lovely, patient and balanced. Such a welcome contrast to the frustration of the supposedly older more "broke" horse. Kika really does make me question my sanity sometimes...maybe I'm not the right rider for her. I sure as hell am far from the best rider for K, but at this stage I'm not sure many would bother with her, I mean she is 11 years old and has had all her formative years under me & my incapabilities. That would be a lot for anyone to take on at any age ;-)
