HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody. I really hope you all had a great holiday season and managed to spend time doing the things you love. I have had more opportunities to ride, when it wasn't raining or too windy. I am not a fan of riding out in the wind because I can't hear the cars coming but Basil is actually surprisingly good in the wind!
Last year was a mixed year but I am pleased with the progress Basil and I made in the first half. Now his tooth is all sorted we have to get fit again! Then we will be able to continue ....
I am really enjoying writing my blog and posting video's and hope to carry on with a video a week (on a Wednesday) for 2016 too. I have been thinking about my blog and have decided this year that I will just blog 3 times a week, instead of 4. It will give me more time to read other people's blogs and watch more videos which I haven't had much time to do recently. So I will blog on Mondays and Fridays and 1 other day, probably Thursday but I am going to keep that a bit flexible!
When I look back at last year's aims I can be proud, but there are a few I have missed :(
So my 2015 Achievements were:
- Ride Basil over a jump
- Basil working forward and in a good shape
- Basil achieving a good leg yield on both reins in walk and trot
