A visual training day with Ingrid Klimke has really got me thinking.
Mum and I went to Wellington Equestrian where Ingrid was doing a MasterClass demonstration all day on Saturday.

This is becoming too regular - I started the week sitting in a meeting all day. This is very alien to me and I find it strange not being outside in the yard.

We had a quiet beginning of the week but Monday and Tuesday was spent unpacking and faffing around from Osberton - we usually unpack the day we get back but as we weren’t back home until 10.30 this really wasn’t very appealing having been away for 5 days!Read More
