After a rest from schooling we decided yesterday to go for a hack. I went and took chris and Ludo for a ride in the woods Lilly was great the first time she had ever seen a pram and after we encouraged her to go go past she settled down to a good trot through the woods.We kept trotting back to chris and Ludo so we did not leave them behind. We also came accross a tiny Shetland pony, she thought it was a large dog, so Chris lead her past this time as we didnot want to make a fuss over a little shetland on his hack with a child on its back. So all in all it was a sucess the 2nd time out in the big wide world.
Today we decided to do some jumping,again this is a first for Lilly, she has done a few poles but never a couples of jumps one after the other. Again we made it as simple as possible and even though the jumps were small the idea was just to get her used to jumping and jump wings as these can be scarey. Lilly was not fazed at all and she took them in her stride.We will do some grid work with her next, this is a few jumps strides apart,I just can't beleive how trusting and relaxed she is. Everyday she learns something new and seems to just love it. A few photo's of Emma and Lilly.
I've searched through my old photo's and found some great Photo's of Ludo. He was such a darling of a pup. Hope you enjoy them.
