So after my saddles trauma, I went out to Rideaway on Saturday, only got lost the once (I'm sure they move the goddam place in between my visits...).....and got a lurvely new saddle which fits perfectly....

...been out for a couple of hacks after tentatively trying him out in the school.....my boy is back to his bouncy self....ears pricked, neck arched, stepping out nicely - cantering from walk and generally a pleasure to ride.....

.....compared to him over the past few weeks being behind the bit, ears back and head in the air and shuffling into a reluctant canter.

So now I know my boy was not trying to tell me he was ready for retirement - and that my riding had not suddenly got (completely)crap overnight.....

So ...YAY! I am happy that my boy is obviously happy again...

Anyone who has got to the end of this without vomiting deserves croissants and coffee....on me
