Weekend news!

By all accounts its been a great weekend for the ex-rehab horses - despite the hideously cold weather we've had (snow here spring is back on hold...).
Krista and Buddy sound as if they are improving by the day: "Just thought I'd let you know that Mr Buds went out today and didn't struggle across any stony bits!".

Katy and Rolie have started having lessons again, a year after he first went lame: "First lesson with Rolie in over a year - both knackered, but felt fabulous!"

Big Dave went home this week  - its seems very odd to only have "normal" sized horses in the yard -and I've had a couple of lovely texts from Cathy: "Had a lovely 40 minute ride this morning and he felt much better than before. Offered trot and was nice and forward most of the time...He was v good!".

Sarah and Solar also seem to be going from strength to strength, too: "Has had the best day :) Went riding up greenhill for the first time in nearly 2 years!". This is all credit to Sarah's immense determination and creativity in finding ways to manage Solar's sensitivity to grass. Whoever said it was easy having a barefoot horse?!

Well done all of you :-)
