My ideal winter horsey day… well this is fun to think about!
Well, for someone that feels cold all the time. I still love riding even in the winter. My mum actually could never understand how I cope being outside all day with the horses because I am so cold all the time! But I honestly do enjoy wrapping up warm & going for a nice hack on a crisp winters day.
So the first thing I would do on my ideal horsey day would be to have a nice cup of coffee & a pancake with chocolate sauce. (Why not eh?!) After that I would head to yard and walk Ziggy my little jack Russell around the fields. He loves coming to the stables with me, however he weirdly likes to come get Mya in with me but when I put on my riding stuff he asks to get into the car where he likes to stay until we go home again. Alone. Even when it’s 35 degrees in the summer in Toulouse!
The next thing I would do would be to go on a nice long hack with a friend. I love hacking early on Sunday morning. I love feeling like I’m the only one awake. The roads are empty and it’s still chilly. We are lucky at our yard, as there are lots of routes we can take that just involve riding through fields, so they are beautiful!
After I have finished riding. I would go home to spend time with my hubby James. I would love to go to the pub for lunch and have lovely roast dinner. Ideally chicken or lamb! I really miss Sunday roast dinners so much! The food in France is obviously amazing but I do miss the traditional roast on a Sunday.
Then I would curl up on the sofa and watch a film and have a glass of wine with James and Zig in front of the fire. So actually my ideal horsey day would involve a lot of food too! Haha! What would be your ideal horsey winters day?
