It’s been a while…

So it has really been a while since I updated this! I started out wanting this to be a blog to keep an update of our progress together but I just haven't had the chance to update recently (where have those 3 months gone???). Loading woes I was hoping to update at the end of … Continue reading It’s been a while…

Sunday antics

Juno and I have had a pretty good last couple of Sunday's! He's been such a good boy recently and we've really been enjoying ourselves. A little bit of TREC... On the 19th (March), a TREC trainer had arranged to come to our yard for some training sessions for newbies and the more experienced. I'd … Continue reading Sunday antics

I'd picked out a lovely livery yard near … Continue reading First days of horse owning (part 1)

Where it all started…

None of my family are horsey, no one I knew well had ever owned a horse. So my exposure to the horse world was limited. I had a Great Aunt I used to visit very occasionally, she used to have shire horses and a tiny Shetland who used to cause havoc. I remember visiting her … Continue reading Where it all started…

Introductions…

Firstly, I should go ahead and introduce myself. I'm Amy and I live in the UK. Just over one year ago (1 year, 3 months, 1 week and 2 days ago to be exact), I became the proud owner of a beautiful lazy German warmblood, named Juno. He's 15 years old, 16.2hh and a grey.... most of … Continue reading Introductions…
