Here’s to 2013 …..!

…I actually took some time off over Christmas, horses to do yes, but no teaching & very little answering the phone!!  A huge thank you to those of you who knew I was off & didn’t call (even if you wanted too!!)  I don’t get time away so it was a real treat!

It did come at a bit of a price though, 4 days before Christmas I was in hospital having the remaining metal work removed from my ankle.  It was something that needed to be done & I figured that this was probably the least disruptive time of year to do it!  I was only in for the day & the op was successful – my surgeon is amazing – but I am still a little on the sore side!  Having said that, stitches are due out today and the horses came back into work last Friday, so I’ve probably only myself to blame!!

I think the horses probably had their holiday at the right time with the dreadful weather.  They’ve been having to make do with just being turned out indoors, which they cope with brilliantly.  Poor Millie has been confined to her stable with a horrible infection in her white leg, but we seem to be on top of that now, so hopefully she will be able to return to work when Jack goes back to school next week & hopefully the arena has dried out a bit!

Maddy & Annie have been hacking together ride & lead which has made life a bit easier & Jack has been out on Scooby with me riding the livery pony that’s in, so its been a busy few days!

So now I’m starting to look to the beginning of the event season!  I was hoping to get Millie out first in March, but I think that’ll have to be put back a month.  So Maddy may well get the first run out, but we need to find some Dressage & show jumping for them both to go to first as well as getting back into the routine of lessons.

Pony Club lessons kick off for me this morning, so I’m off out to do my girls now & get going!  It’s lovely to be looking forward to getting back to normal, I must take a break more often …..
