So What Snow...?

As most of the UK has seen snow in the last few days, it was disappointing that the BSJA show was cancelled today, however it couldn't be helped...

I was working away in London two days this week, and with snow earlier in the week, it had been difficult to get Thomas out and exercised. Fortunately, our yard has a small indoor arena, great for lungeing. This week Thomas has been lunged by both Andrew and I, and with the snow looking set to stay, we were forced back into the inside to exercise.

We haven't done much lungeing together, but as we need to carry on the road to getting fit, I decided to lunge in the side reins to encourage Thomas to work properly, and from behind. He settled into things well and went very nicely. Here's a short video that Andrew took for me:


We're actually hoping for a little more snow overnight to be able to ride out - sticking firmly to the soft snow to avoid slipping. So maybe tomorrow, we'll have a nice photo of us in the snow :)

Andrew and I also walked our black lab this morning, who loved the snow. We saw some beautiful sights, all very pretty and white. I took this as it looks very pretty, but shows the sky is still full of snow!
