Diary - November 2013
After the whole country has suffered an incredibly wet, and in some cases windy, November, we seem to be in a calm before the next (snow - apparently!) storm. The Autumn colours in the Brecon Beacons are finally with us, and are amazing. Or maybe I am just taking more time to stop and stare?
The horses (Limonero, Borba, Tez, Alfie, Bunny, McGee, Firefly, Rosie, Zela, Timber, Cherry, George, Tordo, Poppy, Duchess & Tia) are still enjoying time out on the grass during the day, without succumbing to any nasties like mud-fever. The ability to get some horse-time, stretch their legs and enjoy what is left of "Dr. Green".
The second level of the City & Guilds horse care diploma course is being run at Gilfach. We have organised a trip to the local indoor school to video a dressage test to be sent to www.dressageanywhere.com for their November on-line dressage competition. If anyone would like to join, please contact me
Oscar is enjoying the recently resumed dry weather, and taking the oportunity to exercise in the school when he can. Come the snow, Oscar will be back in the house keeping Sheila company as she recovers from the final chemo this session.
Continues to be being run with reassuring efficiency by Hugh, the Staff, and our band of wonderful helpers!!
