    Riding, showing, hunting, work, my horses....the usual suspects! :)
  1. Solo got ridden last night!

    Thanks! That Norman nasal helm is the easiest one to ride in haha. You have full vision in that unlike the great helms for jousting which only has a 3mm slit to see out of!

  3. Solo got ridden last night!

    Me too lol. It's held at Battle Abbey, they're the ruins left from there.
  4. Solo got ridden last night!

    Other than one scarily high vertical rear followed by walking a 360 circle on his back legs on the first battle day (I have new found respect for the power of that horse now, any other horse should have flipped over the height he got with the unexpected added weight of my armour)..... Other than that one hairy moment he was absolutely brilliant. Attacked the shield wall and did awesome formation cavalry work. Though he did take a bloody good hold on the 24 horse line cavalry charge. 24 horses in a line shoulder to shoulder galloping is something else. Especially with a ditch to go over halfway. Anyway. It was incredible and definitely nothing like anything I've ever done.
  5. Solo got ridden last night!

    He did indeed! He's having a week off as I have the battle of Hastings this weekend so will be away for a few days and working lates at work.... So he's just chilling and having a reflection on everything that's happened over the last couple of weeks. So far he's still keen to work and more interested in playing or creating some form of work. I put the tarp out with him loose in the arena tonight..... Where does he go.... Straight on top of it! Anything scary or out of place apparently means he has to investigate to see if treats appear miraculously haha. Flapped it about up at him whilst he was stood on it, didnt care. Covered him in it over his back after, didn't care. He's gone from the most nervous little horse to the bravest.

    Haha bless him fair enough lol!!! Solo went to a polework clinic today. We went as it was local so rode there just to give him the experience being in a new place and with other new horses etc. Good as gold and even did some poles! Then did Hastings practice on Sparkles. VID-20181007-WA0003.mp4

    Hmmm... Definitely for the time being lol. He's turning to be super cool and willing. Sparks gets to do the fun stuff but i try and make sure he's still the main man! He went out for a four hour hack today. Plus they'll start going on trail rides together soon as my partner will take one and me the other. They're both going to a clinic next Saturday, Solo just for the experience of just standing around and manners around other horses in a new place mostly.

  11. Solo got ridden last night!

    Thanks! I'll get him out hacking soon.... Much better to start seeing the world and not be in a small space all the time. Chaff here is just a bulk feed made out of straw essentially..... Though I have alfalfa chaff.
  12. Solo got ridden last night!

    Indeed it is! It's the only remaining riding house in the UK at bolsover castle, belonging to William Cavendish. I just have a bit of chaff on me! We did a bit of schooling last night. VID_19810920_220930_221.mp4 VID_19800117_001952_585.mp4 VID_19751111_092800_447.mp4
