"Saffy is doing well. I have managed to keep her lovely and trim which I am extremely chuffed about. She had her first ever gallop last week. Yes for the first time in 4 years she hit a gear she never even knew she had under saddle! I was so impressed with her and grinning from ear to ear. I have so missed my pony the last 2 years.
She is thoroughly enjoying her hacking out and this is where she is happiest to trot forward and even canter. She is still a bit of an elephant in the menage, because she is unbalanced she makes no effort to swing through when trotting, and I think she gets some what bored. And she definitely will not canter yet out here. I did however introduce trotting poles today which woke her up and she really enjoyed it so I think variety is the key."
Not many expectant mums would still be doing fast work and trotting poles (!) and its great to hear that Saffy is doing so well :-)
