through a small forest....
I found her:
|see me grinning???No????I guess not; Mary attracts all eyes!!!|
|"pro' " turn to the right...|
|the only time Mary was in front...|
|oh how proud I was!and who wouldn't? she's a beauty!|
|that foot again...|
That must mean I'm a little more relaxed around horses!!!
As soon as I was up in the saddle my first thaught was....would the contact with the sand on the ground hurt? then I shrugged, said a preety unconscious "watever", and went forward! It shurely musn't hurt as bad as asphalt, right? only the hooves would be a real threat...but I refuse to think about that!
It was for the first time that I didn't feel unbalanced..but it must be a combination of my little aquired experience and Mary's extremely well-breeding...I just hope that I can keep her from now on...she's so gentle inspite of her stature...
|can you see how much I enjoy this???|
Imediately after we entered the paddock, althout one hour early, we could ride...one more clue to the nice people at Herneacova! Mary was already half out of her stall, a little girl was grooming her and the huge horse rubbed her head against the girl like she was my Sheeba, or Eisi....only 1000 times bigger!she didn't look so menacing back then...but when the trainer said I should get in the saddle....exactly on that same huge horse...I wasn't so brave anymore...my eyes got wider...and I was to stunned by the beauty of the horse and the fact that I get to ride a Frisian...that I didn't even realize that a guy was pushing my butt to get on the horse...:D...I was 100% shure I made it myself!! how wacky is that???
Only the shock that I was going to ride the biggest horse made me freeze and not start wincing...and maybe complain....but thank God I didn't get to say anyting...frightened and shocked as I was...the photos I watched afterwords showed me why I felt time flew while riding that horse...I was smiling from ear to ear all the time! and not for the camera....
The nicest part was when I tried to separate Mary from Tsjikke...
so I got used to following...
I guess that as compared to last time I went to Herneacova....
p.s. look what I got:
|Blouse from Tunde, earrings from Aura|
Bisous and thanks for stopping by!
