The New Recruit

With Martine's right hand still being very weak, and George away on business this week, we were hoping to find someone else to ride, and Severine, the owner of the other horse in our paddock was looking for a nice quiet horse to ride as she had got a bit of a shock when she fell off her own horse and broke a finger ! So it was agreed, she would ride Gigi and I would ride Flurry.


Gigi was in extra lazy mode, which was fine, and Flurry was pretty chilled as well, so we set off on the ride the horses have done the most often, just to keep things nice and calm.

When I speak French I can't help but use my hands , and Gigi was not to impressed by my lack of steering, but as I said I just can't help it !
Well inevitably we met the sheep, and discretion being the better part of valour, we turned for home, just to be on safe side as it was Severine's first time riding Gigi, but as you can see, my hand is still doing that thing!

A nice calm leisurely hack, just what the Doctor ordered. Flurry was nice to ride, although I missed Gigi's big neck in front of me!
And she kindly waited 'till she got back in the field to blow of steam.
