A perfect day! Crisp, cool and sunny and just right for our first venture out into the big wide world. It’s just under a month ago that we started leaning over Ted in preparation for getting him started under saddle. He’s made steady progress ever since and with a bit of help from Dan (who’s been twice a week now so about 8 visits in total) today we were ready toI enjoy our first ride out. He’s been a superstar in traffic and generally seemed to enjoy himself immensely. And I got to feel his ‘proper trot’ which is lovely, big and bouncy and I am really excited now about getting him going. Here we are heading back to the yard…today Fantastic Ted really lived up to his name.
