Pony has a ride.

I know I said I wasn't going to bring my horses back into work, but yesterday the weather cleared up for a little while and I still had a couple of hours before I had to end back to work so I thought what the hell, why not??
Goldrush is now back in work, I may regret this decision to not wait because now I've started he's going to be worked at least 3 times a week, more if the weather is good. Which probably is going to mean lots of upcoming rides in the rain and wind. Oh well it's not as if I'm not riding in it anyway. This morning the racehorses were ridden in strong winds, hectic rain and thunder and lightening and we all just had to harden up and do it.

My lil wild child Goldrush has been turned out for 4 months now. I was expecting him to be a little difficult at least but it was the complete opposite. He stood really nicely while I uncovered, did his feet, brushed and tacked him up.
I put him on a long lead to "let the crazies out" before I hopped on and he humped his back once then trotted out nicely. He stood for me to hop on and we had a nice ride. Trotted out down the looong as driveway and down the road for a few hundred meters and back. He tried baulking at some road cones, and a dog barking at us but some good positive riding kept him trotting along happily. He wasn't even worried to be leaving his friends.

Was a good baby!!
