View Full Version : Come For A Hack With Bailey! + Others

So so proud of him today!! We were going to go out on our own but J's mum came back with Ziggy and said that someone has dumped a load of tyres and left them in piles on the side of the lane and she couldn't get past it. So I offered to go first so she could have a lead. Bailey went past them no problem, just had a good look at them :). Recently we've had trouble hacking because he would be so hesitant and would stop after every couple of strides and try and turn around, being in company didn't help him at all, made him more nervy infact! But today we had absolutely no stopping and no turning round AND I didn't have to keep my leg on him all the time like I usually have to. We ended up going right down to the village, had a trot round and came back. We were out for about an hour and a half :). We walked past those tyres, a noisy tractor and a noisy van, sheep, goats, barking dogs.. and you know what spooked him? Shetlands! :lol:

He was so, so good though. Such a shame the heavens opened on the way back and we got SOAKED.

Excuse the purple spray and mane!



Heading to the bridge

And over

Up to the scary dark place where there's a biiigg long hill

And back home, absolutely soaking wet!

He looks like he's smiling in that last pic :) Bless him. Wish I had decent off-road hacking still!

Looks like you've got some nice places for hacking :)
I saw a horse on horsemart earlier that was just like a baby version of Bailey :P
