Another Sunday spent at the stables, playing with new friends, riding her favourite pony and getting really muddy. Such a fun way to spend the weekend.
Charlotte fell off Jock today. A couple of the horses who don't like one another got a bit close to one another and it kicked off. Literally. The horse behind them spooked and threw his rider off. Jock was behind him and he got a fright too. Charlotte clung to his neck but he backed up and threw her off too. She got a fright but she was straight up and holding on to his reins. She had a cry but calmed down quickly and got back on Jock, who looked very upset that she had fallen off him. Her confidence took a bit of a knock, as it always does when you come off a horse, but she was fine physically. And she did great on him for the rest of her lesson.
Afterwards, she played in the paddock with a new friend she has made. Aside from riding, playing with my horse friends was one of my favourite things to do at the stables. They were pretending to be horses, one of Charlotte's favourite games to play. She wasn't done with falling and landed in a huge muddy puddle. Needless to say she was stripped for getting in the car to go home!
