Tonight I thought we would venture out on our usual hack that we have been on quite alot before but not in the past few weeks. We started off with a small tantrum as we were leaving the yard but we soon got over the stubbornness and we were off. And I mean off! In a beautiful elevated trot the kind I have never gotten in the school. The type were your instructor would tell you to sit, enjoy and dont touch a damn thing ! I was seriously surpised with what she was coming out out with!
So off we went down the track and round the edge of a field and along the bottom of a second field. We had a short walk in middle but mostly kept trotting.
We reached the corner of the second field we went into canter and headed up the hill in a fast canter. Then
The breaks were on and we were standing dead still. I say we, my mare was standing still and I was still very much moving forward.
I lurched forward, I could feel my blood rush to my head and my feet lift towards the back of the saddle. The ground felt very close to my head.
Luckly I had hold of a bit of mane so my hands stayed up on the top of her neck.
I heaved myself back on as Eva stood glaring at what ever it was that caught her eye.
I then kicked on and we continued up the hill in canter.
