What a great afternoon/evening! Thanks so much to Jennie for letting us invade and for being a very chilled out host. Jennie's place is to die for, it is paradise. It was wonderful to meet the neds too after all this time. Felix was particularly taken with Annie. Lovely to see Helen and Sheila too and have a good old chat, not all of it about :horse:

It was a real shame you were ill Tess. Hope you're on the mend now. I'd really been looking forward to seeing you.

Yes, we did sleep in the hay barn which smelt fantastic and the first thing I saw when the dawn broke was Hannibal mooching around in the field next to us :thumbup:

:thumbup: Hope so!
Yes it was a super get-together at Jennie's :hurray: :toast:
Helen & Ali & the NO arrived mid-morning and we took the ponies into the round pen for some inhand work; Fina showed she knew what it was all about under Ali's quiet guidance.

Then she sort of found herself on board and did a bit of one rein riding to follow on

Then as they had brought along their horseback archery gear, we went into the field where there's a flat gallop and Ali loosed off some arrows from Fina who was quite happy about it. I got some short bits of video of that too:

Went to see Jo and Stewart the other day as they couldn't make it to Jennie's. Gad to report Stewart seems to be back on form :thumbup: Did some stuff with her fab youngster, Grace. And the NO put the pony through his paces :wink: :lol:
