Had a really good day yesterday. Spent the morning riding around Cosmeston lakes with my friend's horse Spot. He's a 17.2 percheron x appalossa and is a gentle giant. I was really lucky as the weather has been very changable here in Wales, we managed nearly the whole ride in the dry but the heavens opened just as we were on the road home, never mind we still had a good time and got to enjoy the beautiful views and have a good canter or two.
Was good to spend time with friends too, my friend's horse Jack is only 5 and he was very excited on our hack but was helped by having three older horses with him. He's such a little cutie.
Came home after riding and was supposed to get ready for a friend's BBQ. However, my current medication has the side effect of making me really tired and I ended up falling asleep for a while. Normally I would have used this as an excuse not to go out as I'm not great with company at the moment. however decided not to give in to that temptation, walked over to my friends and actually had a really good evening. Pleased at pushing myself to go out and socialise. It was definitely worth it.
Now for today and having to pack to go home to see family. It's for unfortunate reasons, I have a funeral to attend but am just hoping I can get through it without getting too low. Fingers crossed, be good to see my family.
