Not much to blog about this weekend

Seeing as we haven't done much today (I'm still waiting for the kitchen to be finished so we're going out for dinner shortly) so I thought I would post a picture of the horse I rode last Sunday. Her name is Echo and she is great fun to ride. Once I had got into the saddle the woman taking us out said that I didn't need to squeeze her on at all so I knew I was in for a good ride. She was fast, fun, but not jumpy and I got back without having my arms ripped out from their sockets.
I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to ride her next Sunday (I'm not riding tomorrow) and I will be very spoilt if I do! She is a favourite of a few of us, so I always feel special when I get to ride her.
You can find the horses at Belfairs Riding School here

I have to say horsey's are not my thing. I'm scared to death of their big feet...and their hair makes me sneeze! But I do appreciate the commanding beauty that they have. Echo is lovely and so is her name!

She's BEAUTIFUL! :) I esp. love her long white hair (sorry I don't know the right word in English). I hope you'll have her next week too. :) Also your riding school has great web pages and the horses, ooh! :)

I absolutely love her, looks like a steady type of horse too.:o) Do you ride indoors or outdoors during winter months?
By the way, I have got some yarn that I need to use. Do you have any beginners patterns for socks that you can share? My mum is giving me some sticks (eng.word?) so I can start after this weekend. We have mother's Day coming up on Sunday.:o)
