Forgiving of my wobbliness following 8 months off, Baxter and Oakley were both very gentle and kind while we walked and trotted around the paddock and arena, just like I’d never stopped riding!

Oakley moseyed past a barking dog and wheelbarrows and got a bit excited about the whole experience but held himself together and gave me no trouble that a one-rein stop could fix!

After eight months of only being able to pat, feed and lead the Lads I am ecstatic to finally be in the saddle again after the birth of our second child! Great times all round!
