Aside from the crafts I do whilst sitting on my backside, I love Carriage Driving horses.
I was forced to give up riding years ago, that’s when I started driving Kaja again. Thank goodness she had grown up a bit because when she was younger she was a danger in harness in a scary way…not good, that’s why I rode her for ten years, it was easier dealing with the dangers that way…in her defence the way she behaved was not her fault, in fact the way she was treated after she had been weaned from her Mum, she had, had a hard life before I bought her at the age of 5.
However, in traffic Kaja is great, she could not care less about what cars or anything else on the road does and that is how I want the boys to be.
Now the youngest boy, Gaius, is going away this summer to be trained by a good friend, to be ridden and when he is going well at that he will come back to me to be ridden out by a *willing helper when I drive Kaja.
While Gais is away *Cheryl & I will get Chester (Shetland pony) driving.
It all sounds alot, but it’s not really when you consider all the help I have from friends.
The huge bonus I am going to have this summer is that a wonderful family we are friends with are moving into a local farm that forms part of a massive estate. They have said I can keep the horses there and that they are happy to help out when I’m not well…it’s great because they have horses so they know how to look after them.
I have the horses/pony, the harness & the carts…
This summer is going to be so exciting.
Just wanted to share something other than MS.
