Growing

God is good.

so was Destiny for his mom’s ride on Friday

Although our riders have been doing better and better, for a time our growth plateaued a bit. Well, that time’s pretty over.

so many

On Saturday, I led the biggest group hack I’ve taken out at our own yard. They were all wonderful (well, except Starlight) and we rode about three-quarters of the way round the farm without a single mishap.

Liana, Sunè and Vastrap were carrying their kids, Starlight had L, Stardust had a lesson kiddie,

and two outside riders from another local riding school joined us, too.

I was on my most trusted dragon steed, and there’s not a single picture of her. Sorry Arwen. She blew some fire at the neighbouring cows and Liana had to go past and show her it was OK and there was no need to incinerate anyone, but otherwise she plodded on the buckle. As did most of them. It was amazing.

Who’d think after the disastrous crash in the end of last year that I’d ever have the guts to take even a single child out again? I didn’t. Apparently God did.

Then, I headed to a beautiful old farm even deeper into nowhere than we are to have a look at a grey mare that spooks spectacularly. She wasn’t too bad for me, and I’m hoping for a little repeat business there, but it remains to be seen.

their dogs are the best

And on Sunday morning a nice lady and her little girl from Deep Kyalami came to see if they could bring their gorgeous, well-bred, spooky young pony to us for schooling. On the videos it moves like Nell did, so I’m kind of excited for that one.

they invented a new game of pass-the-bin which goes fine until he drops the bin on Magic’s foot

On Thursday we’re also going to pick up a new arrival, a kid’s TB mare. 

Magic was not amused about that

And I have bookings for lessons from two brand-new clients.

so Xave retaliated

I also got a more long-term contract helping to edit a novel draft that I’m totally in love with.

bad move on Xave’s part

I keep going to God willing to do anything, and He keeps giving me awesome things to do. Sometimes I’m not sure why,

he’s better at people faces than I am

but then I watch my horses play, and I remember how I am loved.

Glory to the King.

    As Lesley said, “Exciting times.” The King only gives extra work to those He trusts and knows He can rely on 😉
