My new year started very positively with a day's hunting with the Bilsdale Hunt on New Years Day on my four year old Highland, Talisker Bow Bells. He was very well behaved apart from a small acrobatic show for followers on foot - see photos attached! I felt the experience really benefited him and he certainly learnt to get over his puddle and mud fear! We made some new friends and I am excited to get a lot more hunting in with him next season!
On 2nd January, I had a major show planning and society joining day! I also booked my HGV theory test and hazard perception test for February. I am really excited to get this season started now!
January has also been an exciting month for new arrivals for me with a new pony and a new puppy arriving within a week of each other. I am smitten with both, which are keeping me very busy!
Also in January, both ponies enjoyed a visit from our sponsor RBN Physiotherapy. Robyn Marron is a talented young physiotherapist in the North East and we are proud an grateful of her support this season.
