Merry Christmas

After an unusually mild autumn, we have finally got some snow and the world is much brighter.
(How do you cope, all you guys out there in milder climates with just rain and darkness???)

It has been nice to have some milder temperatures - last winter was tough - but it is so dark without the snow that I feel my energy level gets affected.

Last weekend I had a lovely ride with my daughter.

The last one together with our horses.

My daughter is not well, but her health is improving and she has started school again this autumn after two years absence.
Unfortunately this drains her for energy, and after contemplating the matter for a long time we decided to sell her pony.

Charlie left us last weekend to a very nice family with a 13 yo daughter.
We will miss him very much, but I believe it was the right decision.
still have got Fame to share. 
I just hope it works out because in my daughter's eyes, Fame is my horse - even though I actually bought Fame for her once upon a time. 
My daughter has had her own pony since she was seven, and that is close to ten years.
No wonder it feels strange being without. 

The autumn has been hectic, and I just haven't had the energy to keep the blogging up to date.
Fame and me have been training a lot though. 
Those of you that has been following the blog know that I have been struggeling with tenseness in Fame. 
Even if it is less now than it was a year ago, it has crept up from time to time - as usual (aarrgggh) much caused by me.
It is so easy to tense up when your horse also is tense.

Anyway, I feel that we have managed to solve much of it lately, and that is so nice because then you can proceed with everything else. 


Still some mountains to climb...

I wish all of you a marvellous Christmas, and all the best for the New Year!
