Womble and Alfie are enjoying some well deserved rest and relaxation in the paddock and thankfully we have some lovely autumn sunshine this week – we have a well trodden ‘let down’ programme we follow with the horses post a big goal; they are not just turned out in the field and forgotten about. We let them down gently over a number of weeks, with their treatments of magnetic rug therapy, massage, icing, stretches and walking continuing for a couple of weeks a part of their break programme. We always also scan the horses as a matter of routine to check all is in order a couple of weeks after each major three day event.
It’s lovely to see both horses enjoying themselves, chilling out in the paddocks as I’m riding around in the arena.
I’m already excited about 2015, with the range of lovely horses I have to ride. I may not have many horses nowadays but the ones I have are exciting!
