All dressed up with nowhere to go!

Today we decided to have some fun and get all dressed up in all our finery and take some pictures. Thanks to a good friend of mine for being my groom/photographer. It was REALLY handy to have someone help me get on and pass my jacket etc up to me. It was a tad muddy outside so it was interesting trying to keep everything clean. lol Now I see why thge ladies always had to have grooms with them!
We started off inside so we could try the pelham out and get warmed up. B went really well in the new bit and stayed very soft. I liked having the curb rein to ask for a bit more flexion when needed. I got a gel pad a few weeks ago and I've been putting that under the saddle and it seems to make a positive difference.
All dressed up and ready to go.....somewhere?
Off we go for a tour down the road. Definitely felt a little overdressed but it was fun!And a trot through the field...

Heading back home, that was fun!

  1. Just like something out of a book.... so, is what I suspect true? Would it be absolutely unrealistic to have a modern life, care for your own horse, and outfit yourself and STILL have the time and energy to go out for a romantic weekend hack in formal sidesaddle attire? Then clean up after yourself?

    Really, I think it would be much easier to have the groom meet you at the manor house, and phone for a car.

    Great pictures though. I think #7 is worthy of a Paul Brown illustration.
